Magnolia Manor Park Update – March/April 2017

The Friends of Magnolia Manor Park (FMMP) has applied for a Neighborhood Matching Fund grant!! The purpose is to develop the northern portion of the park. Approved in the previous Opportunity Fund project but not funded, this project will move the fence in the NE corner about ten feet to the east. This amazing view spot will allow people to see great views of Mt Baker and the Cascades. As part of the just-finishing project, this element has been reviewed and approved by Seattle Parks and Recreation, the City of Seattle Department of Construction & Inspection and Seattle Public Utilities.

FMMP will be hosting three public open house/work sessions!! Get your design caps on and come to these public gatherings to share your ideas! How about the concrete patio & old signs? Tangled vegetation to go! A new flat area with recently-built retaining wall—how to best use? Site Workshop will once again be part of the team, yes!! The goal is to solicit input on park design and to produce detailed designs for the northern portion of the park.

The grant was just submitted! There are six long weeks to wait to find out if FMMP received the grant. Stay tuned!! Feel free to share your questions or ideas at
