ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

The West Seattle Junction has it all: friendly retailers, delicious food, arts, culture and convenient services; everything except an open space park for gatherings, playdates and concerts. In a joint effort to remedy that, the West Seattle Junction Association and the Junction Neighborhood Organization are announcing the Breaking Ground Celebration on the future site of the Junction Plaza Park on April, 12, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of SW Alaska Street and 42nd Avenue SW, on the site of a former filling station that has been re-mediated over 10-years, with the old tanks removed and the land completely “greened” to remain so in perpetuity. Park completion date is slated for late May 2010.

Junction Plaza Park, designed by landscape architect Karen Kiest, will feature a plaza, complete with brick and concrete seating; a lawn with decorative benches; and a central performance area. All planting will be Northwest natives, including Vine maple, Northwest Flowering dogwood, Oregon grape and Sword fern.
