Seattle Parks and Recreation would like to gather your feedback on three concepts for the expansion site at Morgan Junction Park. On June 22, 2019, we hosted a booth at the Morgan Summer Festival to show three concept designs and get your feedback. These designs were based on input from our first public meeting at the 2018 Morgan Summer Festival and an online survey at that time. This second survey provides an opportunity for likely park users and residents who were unable to attend the second meeting at this year's summer festival the opportunity to provide input.
Following community input from this survey and the June 22, 2019, meeting, the design team will develop a preferred design concept. The preferred design will be presented at the third and final community meeting sometime later this summer/early fall.
We anticipate construction and completion of the park addition by the end of 2020.
The three concepts with a summary and the description of the site are shown below.
About the site: the expansion site is 0.28 acres. It is located in a neighborhood/commercial zone, with numerous local businesses nearby. Much of the surrounding neighborhood is single family residential. The site was acquired with the help of King County funding that restricts use to low-impact, passive recreation. The funding also limits the amount of impervious surface to 15% of the site area or less to provide green open space and improve stormwater infiltration.
About the three concepts:
Community Green - this concept maximizes flexibility with a large open lawn space and a multi-sport court.
"Triangles" - this concept maximizes the view of the Olympic mountains from a view platform atop an iconic platform.
"Three Hills" - this concept creates separate zones connected by a loop path with views of the Olympic mountains.
