Community invited to provide input

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to review the design for the development of a new park at 1101-1137 NE Boat Street on Portage Bay on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 at the Bryant Building, 1117 NE Boat Street.   Please join Seattle Parks and Recreation and the design team from Walker Macy at 6:30 pm. Families, students, and neighbors are encouraged to attend and participate in the design.

Seattle Parks and Rec and the design team have incorporated community feedback from previous meetings into the design.  This meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn more about the project and provide input on the final design.

Seattle Parks and Rec purchased the Bryant marina site (1101-1137 NE Boat Street on Portage Bay) from the University of Washington in 2014.  The goal for the park project is to provide upland and shoreline/water-related recreational experiences for all ages and abilities. The development will include remediation of site contamination, building demolition and potential partial re-use of building elements and shoreline enhancement. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2017 and completed in 2018.
