Join us for the grand opening of Yesler Terrace Park.

The transformation of Yesler into a vibrant new urban community is becoming more apparent with the emergence of new housing, parks, services, community organized activities, art and transportation choices. The new Yesler Terrace Park provides an important civic gathering place for residents, neighbors from the surrounding areas and visitors from within and outside of Seattle to connect with each other. The park features play equipment, a spray park, an outdoor basketball court, a soccer field sponsored by the Seattle Sounders FC/RAVE Foundation, and other amenities.
