Morgan Junction Park Addition

Updated: July 18, 2024

Summer 2024

Work on removing the hazardous soil from the new parcel, formerly used as a dry cleaner, will start in early August 2024 and will last for approximately 8 weeks. This work will include demolition of the existing concrete and asphalt, installation of temporary shoring, and excavating down to 16’ to remove the lens of dry-cleaning solvents. Then clean fill will be added, topsoil, temporary irrigation, and grass.

Design and permitting work for the addition project continues. SPR is working with community partner Morgan Junction All Wheels Association (MJAWA) to integrate an all-wheels skate-dot into the project. MJAWA working with Grindline Skateparks has gathered community input on potential designs. SPR and MJAWA will work towards integrating the skate-dot into the larger project for permitting and construction.

Project Description

In 2014, Seattle Parks and Recreation purchased the .47-acre property at 6311 California Ave SW, north of Morgan Junction Park, to expand the park and provide additional open space for this high-density neighborhood. The design will incorporate accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and additional park elements will be incorporated after gathering public input.

The additional parcel will not be accessible during construction.
