Incredible Parks Want Incredible Names

The Duwamish River is one of the most industrialized rivers, but it is the site of transformative community activism and public sector leadership. To recognize the stewardship of the community in restoring the Duwamish River, the Port and Seattle Parks Foundation is renaming six Port-owned parks and shoreline access sites along the Duwamish River to new names that reflect the cultural and environmental history of the area.

Park name nominations revealed on Sep. 15!
We received more than 3,000 responses during the 'Incredible Parks Want Incredible Names' nomination phase. Join us on Tuesday, September 15 (Noon - 12:30 p.m.) via Microsoft Teams Meeting to listen live as we announce the top three nominations for each park and launch the park name scoring phase.
