Our Vision for this Project

The Cal Anderson 2020 Park Project  is an outreach process to receive and address potential design and programming interventions to Cal Anderson Park. BLM protests following the murder of George Floyd have accelerated efforts in park departments and organizations around the country to take a much deeper look at the assumptions, language, and designs of public space systems. There is a need/opportunity, right now, to address how these issues play out at Cal Anderson Park. We want people to voice ideas who have previously been unheard or who have not been provided the appropriate space to share. The goal of Seattle Parks and Recreation is to implement, immediate, action items and long-term goals.  These steps will be aimed at enhancing the sense of belonging in the Park (centering on the BIPOC population) and building on and sustaining the health of the people, the health of the environment and strong community that supports the park.

Goals of Seattle Parks and Recreation:  This is the vision of Seattle Parks and Recreation: Healthy People, Healthy environment, and strong communities.  We carry out our vision leading with equity.
