Woodland Park is an exciting, multipurpose park and recreation space just southwest of Green Lake and north of the Fremont district. It is separated into two parts by Aurora Avenue.

The side west of Aurora is largely occupied by the Woodland Park Zoo, but also includes some picnic space, a formal rose garden, a few open spaces, and a play area for children. East of Aurora, just south of Green Lake Park, the park is an ideal spot for picnics with reservable picnic areas, barbecues, woods, pleasant grassy hills and pathways. It is also one of the city's most active hubs for sports and recreation, including walkway paths, several playfields, tennis courts, lawn bowling, horseshoe pits, a skatepark, and a large, wooded dog off-leash area.

Lower Woodland Park Office Renovation Project

After securing funding to repair the office building, following the fire damage, to comply with code and accessibility requirements to and around the building Seattle Parks and Recreation has encountered permitting and other delays. We are at 90% design and are moving forward to 100% design. We are planning to send the project out to Bid in fall 2023 with construction starting in early 2024.


The budget for the planning and design of the fire repairs is $250,000  


Construction: Begins Winter 2023/2024
Completion:  2024
