This 30,000-square-foot property was once the site of a Seattle City Light flume that transferred water from a pump house along the Duwamish River to a steam plant. Seattle City Light recently offered the land to Seattle Parks Department. The Georgetown community is seeking funds to turn the site into an off-leash dog park and/or part of the Georgetown to South Park Trail.
An off-leash dog park is the most desired open space amenity among Georgetown residents. Several thousand people work in the neighborhood, many of them pet owners. We aim to activate an underdeveloped parcel of public land—possibly the Georgetown Flume site—and keep it well used throughout the day and all week long. This is will help address public safety concerns among residents and people who work in the neighborhood.
