    • In 2017, the City of SeaTac began a three-phase improvement plan for this park. The first two phases, which are now completed, included the creation of a child play area, basketball courts and a walking trail. The third phase, which is projected to be completed in fall 2024, includes a child spray park, pollinator garden and restrooms. If a sculpture/mural combination is selected, the mural will be located on the restroom building.
