Green Lake Community Boathouse

Review Status

On April 18, 2019, we reviewed the schematic design phase (60% design) for the Green Lake Community Boathouse project. At this meeting we approved the concept design.  We will review the project again during the schematic design phase.

Project Description

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is proposing to redevelop the existing Green Lake Small Craft Center, which is located on the southwestern edge of Green Lake north of Woodland Park. The center offers several rowing, canoeing, and kayaking programs and classes for youth and adults. Currently the site includes the existing small craft center, shell house and public restrooms, Aqua Theater, and several piers. The project would include the redevelopment of the small craft center only.  The proposed redevelopment project will increase the amount of programmable space from 10,000 SF to 17,000 SF and will provide additional space for boat storage, workout equipment, meeting/office space, and bathroom/changing facilities.

*Please note this project was formally reviewed at the Concept Design Phase as the Green Lake Small Craft Center.  The project has been renamed the Green Lake Community Boathouse.
