The City of Seattle is rebuilding Seattle’s central waterfront. With the removal of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, the City is constructing a 26-block, a 20-acre park stretching north-south from Belltown to Pioneer Square that will serve as: An invitation to reconnect to the water, to the mountains, to our city, and to one another. A place to share the stories that illuminate the multiple histories and cultures that define Seattle and must shape its future. A safe and welcoming public space created through active programming, 24/7/365 on-site public safety team to support a positive park experience, and by compassionately connecting people in need to social services and resources. A green waterfront that will add hundreds of new trees and native plants to support the nearshore habitat and serve as a massive filtration system to remove pollutants from stormwater before it enters the sound.
