Project Description

Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) have developed a proposal to revive the health of a segment of Thornton Creek at and near the Lake City Flood Plain Park, while supporting community programming within the park. Through a partnership between Mid Sound Fisheries, SPU and SPR, the team has proposed upgrades to the segment of Thornton Creek to advance health of the creek and enhance the public open spaces at Lake City Floodplain Park.
