Friday, September 9th, 4-6pm

Meet by the 8th Ave Underpass

Freeway Park is over 5 acres of lush plants and trees that need round the clock love and attention. We partner with Seattle Parks & Recreation to provide ways for our community members to get involved while providing a few extra hands to keep the park clean and gorgeous.

Join us on Friday, September 9th from 4-6pm for as much time as you can spare! We will have some tools and gloves to share but bring your own if you can.

Mission Statement

The Freeway Park Association engages and mobilizes people, organizations, and resources to ensure widespread enjoyment and the continued activation of Jim Ellis Freeway Park in partnership with the City and the community, for present and future generations of Seattle residents and visitors. Through the creation of dynamic public experiences and community-building opportunities in a well-maintained and safe environment, the Freeway Park Association is recognized as the innovative driving force behind Seattle’s most iconic urban park and is a model for community/city partnerships working toward the improvement of public spaces.

Description

The Freeway Park Association is a 501c3 membership based and community driven non-profit organization who has been working alongside the Seattle Parks Department since 1993 to activate and advocate for Freeway Park.

FPA started as a few concerned neighbors hoping to bring life back into their aging neighborhood park. Today we are a coalition of dedicated community members and volunteers, 15 organizational members, 11 volunteer board members and 3 staff - an Executive Director, an Outreach & Engagement Coordinator and a Lead Park Ambassador. Our members and volunteers make up the backbone of the Association and represent our neighbors from First Hill and Downtown. We are also supported by a diverse array of partners who provide programming, funding and outreach.

FPA has been a community partner to Seattle Parks & Rec since 1993. Our work includes advocacy and fundraising to support capital projects like the widened 8th ave underpass, the 2010 landscape renovation and the Freeway Park Improvement Project. We also develop dynamic activation and events like Dancing til Dusk and the Community Lanterns programs.
