Junction Plaza Park Sculpture Celebration

artwork-small-jppHave you seen the beautiful kinetic sculpture at Junction Plaza Park? Meet us at the park to hear about the history behind the capstone of the Junction art project, plus meet the group who made this happen.
 
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 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.
