FRIENDS OF WATERFRONT SEATTLE IS DEDICATED TO CREATING AND SUSTAINING A WATERFRONT PARK FOR ALL.
Following the public-benefit partnership model, Friends of Waterfront Seattle educates the public about the park and its benefits, raises philanthropic funds to build and support operations of the park, and partners with the City to manage and program the park in perpetuity.
Our goal is to realize the public’s vision for a waterfront park where all communities can share cultural, recreational, and civic experiences in a safe, beautiful environment.
Friends is a founding member of the High Line Network, a movement in cities across the world to reclaim underutilized infrastructure and re-imagine it as public space.
THE VISION FOR WATERFRONT PARK WAS CONCEIVED THROUGH A COMMUNITY‑WIDE EFFORT.
The design of Waterfront Park was created with community input and collaboration at its core. Programming the park is made possible through consistent collaboration with community partners, and we invite you to get involved. Interested in partnering with Friends?
