New sculpture at Junction Plaza Park to be dedicated Nov. 20 11/15/2016 updated 27 minutes ago A new sculpture at Junction Plaza Park by artist Troy Pillow will be dedicated in a special ceremony on Nov. 20 at Noon. The groups behind making the sculpture a reality are according to the West Seattle Junction Merchants Association, JuNO, Junction Association, Department of Neighborhoods, and Seattle Parks. Junction Plaza Park is a .15 acre park in the heart of the West Seattle Urban Village. It was dedicated in 2010 and is owned and maintained by Seattle Parks and Recreation. Under the project management of Seattle Parks and Recreation, the park land was purchased with initial funds from the Pro Parks Levy Opportunity Fund and a park design was completed with significant public input. In 2007, developer Blue Star Management was granted an alley vacation by the City of Seattle for their West Seattle development (now known as the Spruce Building). As part of the public benefit, $25,000 was dedicated to Junction Plaza Park. In spring of 2015, the community was assigned a Parks and Recreation department project manager, Pamela Kliment, to help guide the final phase. A steering committee was also established at this time. The committee is made up of volunteer community members coming from various backgrounds and neighborhood perspectives. With a grant through Department of Neighborhoods, the project was completed in November, 2016. Refreshments and snacks will be provided by your Junction merchants.
