A new 1.8-acre Yesler Terrace Park located directly adjacent to the Yesler Community Center in the heart of the neighborhood was completed in the summer of 2018. The spacious park, with views of Mount Rainier, Puget Sound, Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, provides play spaces, an area for fairs and markets, a soccer arena, paths and seating for strolling and community gathering, and a great lawn for sports, exercise, picnics and concerts.
The Seattle Housing Authority completed preparatory site work and transferred the site to the City of Seattle in late 2016. The Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation now manages the operations of Yesler Terrace Park. Those interested in scheduling special activities in the park may contact the Department directly.
