Getting it DONE! A little THANK YOU to our Volunteers!


On October 6, members of St. Joseph’s (Capitol Hill) made the trip to West Seattle and spent many hours making a difference in some pretty important spots in our Park. We can’t thank them enough for pulling and digging ivy and blackberry in our future Green Seattle Day planting site. A really great group and we’re so happy they chose us to spend some of their many hours out helping Seattle communities. Thanks and please join us ANYTIME!

AND… many thanks and appreciation for all of the other volunteers who join us (regulars and drop-ins alike!) Our park is a thing of beauty and wouldn’t be so, without YOU!
