Seattle Parks asks for local help naming 14th Avenue Park – My Ballard

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites residents to submit potential names for the new park to be built on 14th Ave NW which has been under construction since 2009. The design of the project is almost complete, with the 90% Street Improvement Plan now under review by SDOT.

The park creation is expected to convert two full blocks on 14th Ave NW (between NW 59th and NW 61st streets) and will replace the gravel parking lot and portions of the existing concrete roadway.

According to Seattle Parks, the project includes green infrastructure and incorporates safety improvements for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles.

In terms of project funding, the Parks and Green Space Levy provided approximately $2.9 million for the design and construction of 14th Ave Park Boulevard.

The Parks Naming Committee will review all suggestions and make a recommendation to Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent Jesús Aguirre, who will make the final decision on the new park.

All suggestions must be submitted in writing no later than Thursday, March 31, 2016 and include an explanation of how your suggestion fits naming criteria.
