Project designs have not yet been considered. We first want to get your input.
If the property was to become part of Cove Park, the house on the property would go away. Using the house or selling it to reallocate funds to other projects is not one of the options available.
The greatest opportunity this project brings is additional visual relief and expanded public water view and some additional foot access.
The added property would have limited use.
Land and house could not be used for:
Dog Park, Restaurant or other Business,
Parking or Motor Vehicles.
The Seattle City Park Department is exploring the feasibility of expanding Cove Park to include 8923 Fauntleroy Way SW, immediately north of Cove Park, through a property trade with King County. This additional land would increase the the Public’s physical and visual access to Puget Sound.
The property is currently owned by King County. The county does not have any use for it anymore and is looking at options to dispose of it. The two options under consideration are either to trade it to the City for an expansion of Cove Park or sell it on the open market back to private hands to be privately developed.
Wouldn't it be great if the Parks Department created more visual expansions and public Puget Sound access!
