Seattle Park District is funding the work. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District is providing more than $47 million annually in long-term funding to address the major $267 million maintenance backlog for Seattle Parks and Recreation as well as other facilities including the aquarium and zoo. In addition, it provides funds to improve and rehabilitate community centers, preserve the urban forest, perform day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities, provide more recreational opportunities for people in underserved communities, provide programs for people from all ages and abilities, and acquiring and developing new land within the park.
