Preservation-minded renovation of Halprin’s Freeway Park moves forward

As renovations kick into gear, the City of Seattle is collaborating with Freeway Park Association (FPA), the park’s nonprofit stewards, to repair the park’s facilities and infrastructure. Last summer FPA tapped Seattle’s SiteWorkshop Landscape Architects to produce schematic designs and conceptual renderings for park improvements based on community feedback. Work may also include upgrades to lighting, wayfinding, and entrances, as well as restrooms and site furnishings.

$1o million of the project cost is being financed by a public benefits package that stems from the expansion of the Washington State Convention Center (WSCC), a $1.7 billion project that the Seattle City Council has yet to approve. FPA has also received grant money to carry out the repairs.
