Maple Leaf Reservoir Park

Reinvigorating a jewel in the crown of the Seattle Park System by planting native wildflowers and improving meadow habitat for pollinators and birds

Support This Project

Project Description

With its grand views of Lake Washington, Mount Rainier and downtown Seattle, it is time to improve the “wave meadows” of Maple Leaf Reservoir Park by keeping with the “Living Landscape” goals and adding a diverse selection of flowering native perennials and improving habitat for pollinators, insects, and birds. We plan to reinvigorate the park by removing invasive weeds in the tall-grass meadow areas and rain gardens (north and west of the vault) and replacing those exotics with native plants.
