Pavement Pays for Park
Mitigation funds from SR520 expansion impacts on the iconic Washington Park Arboretum and two other City parks allowed the City to purchase the property.
Sittin’ on the dock of a bay. The City of Seattle is creating a place for residents to do just that in the Portage Bay neighborhood. To bring the park to life, the City agreed to purchase a portion of the Boat Street property from the University of Washington. Before it could deed the property over, the University needed a Lot Boundary Adjustment, and they hired Reid Middleton’s survey group to perform a topographic survey of the site and the full right-of-way of adjacent Boat Street locating pavement limits, building corners, sidewalks, pier lines and docks, ground features, trees, landscaping, and other improvements and visible utilities. The park will provide a range of passive recreational opportunities and shoreline restoration and habitat.
