1224 S King Street

In 2011, the Seattle Parks Department, Friends of Little Saigon, and interested community members identified an area of the community that would provide open space for the Little Saigon neighborhood. This .27-acre area will redevelop a portion of the city block that was underutilized as a parking lot. The design amenities of the new park were identified through a series of community meetings with the landscape architecture firm of Murase Associates. The final design includes passive and active green lawns, an event plaza, a central pathway that includes accessibility to park amenities, and seating areas. The new park will take advantage of the slope between Jackson and King Streets by incorporating an amphitheater with stepped seating and movable chairs. An open competition was held for public art designs and for the submission of possible names for the new park; both of which will be announced prior to construction. Construction of the park is scheduled to begin in the winter 2020.

Walk east on King Street to 16th Avenue S and turn right. Walk south to S Weller Street.
