Gemenskap Park is out for construction bid


We’re pleased to announce that Gemenskap Park just went out for construction bid last week. Bid opening will begin May 17 with plans to start construction this summer. This is a huge milestone for this park which was first conceived by the community over 12 years ago! We’ll continue to keep you posted as we learn more. Check out the final engineering drawings here.

Gemenskap, pronounced Yuh-MEN-skawp, means community in Swedish and truly reflects the perseverance of the East Ballard Community these many years to stick with our dreams, push Seattle Parks and SDOT to work outside of their comfort zone, and demonstrate that with patience and tenacity, our dream of creating a safe, beautiful, and innovative linear park along a former trolley line can come true!
