Boardwalk Design

SPU and SDOT are considering safety and environmental impacts when designing the boardwalk on the east side of the SW Kenyon St and 24th Ave SW site.

A rendering of the boardwalk show from the west side of the creek. The boardwalk is made of wood and elevated above the large grass field. People walking, on bikes, and using a wheelchair are shown using the boardwalk.

Arts Concept at SW Kenyon St & 24th Ave SW

At this site SPU is partnering with the Seattle Arts & Culture 1% for the Arts program to integrate art at SW Kenyon St & 24th Ave SW.

What we heard from community members

  • Community Space: Many community members would like the site to be a place they can spend time together.

  • Cleanliness & Maintenance: The community would like to see the site clear of bramble and mud as well as have litter and graffiti removed.

  • Safety: Safety is a priority for community members passing through the site.

  • Connecting with Surrounding Habitat: Community members would like the site to connect with the creek.

The artist’s goals are to make this place interesting for the community to visit and for the art to offer something unexpected, thought-provoking, and perhaps a little magical.

 

This site is where life forces are nourished by the creek, where neighbors can connect with each other while they pass through, and where community can experience the natural world and its often unseen processes.
