Greenwood-Phinney may get a new park! Thanks to the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy that passed, the Greenwood Phinney Residential Urban Village is eligible to apply for money to acquire and develop a community park.
The first community meeting with Seattle Parks was November 2nd. Since then, thanks to significant community input, we’ve made some progress in identifying multiple sites throughout the neighborhood. A few sites were suggested by community members in Greenwood and Phinney Ridge and the Parks department is currently favoring 3 locations and will look further at alternate locations if needed. The following are the potential sites with notes about their status from the Parks Department:
6802 Greenwood Ave N (abandoned gas station) – not a willing seller
8100 Greenwood Ave N (occupied by Greenwood Quick Stop, Manna Teriyaki, & Aloha Japanese Noodles) – willing seller / high price
8301 Greenwood Ave N (occupied by Dry Cleaners & 2 residences) – willing sellers
7610-7618 Greenwood Ave N (occupied by small apartment & triplex residents)
Drafts of the sites’ information including advantages and disadvantages is available by clicking on the site address info under Supporting Documentation at the top of this page.
Seattle Parks is discussing the sale with the landowners.
