Transforming the Cheasty Greenspace When Mary DeJong and her husband Joel, moved to Seattle more than a decade ago, they fell in love with their neighborhood. “We knew we needed to be here,” DeJong says, standing outside her home in Rainier Valley. “We also knew that we wanted to participate in something, and at the time we couldn’t really name what that something was.”

That something turned out to be half a block away, just up her street: 10 acres of forest between the Lockmore neighborhood on Beacon Hill and Columbia City. This is the Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View, whose slopes are now covered with ferns and other young native plants. A winding footpath reveals peek-a-boo views of the Cascades and takes hikers past benches made of cedar logs. It’s a place where DeJong and her daughter, Anna, hike (and where Anna gets excited when she finds a slug). It’s an escape for DeJong’s two boys, who outfit themselves with whistles and play. It’s also a destination for groups from the nearby Boys & Girls Club and the Refugee Women’s Alliance, who participate in wilderness camps. But back in 2003, when it was just DeJong, her husband, and a black Labrador named Jackson, this place looked totally different. “It was a drape of darkness,” DeJong recalls. “We had a dog, and we thought, ‘Oh, let’s take him into the woods.’ And it was on that first walk when we discovered, ‘Oh, this isn’t a welcoming place.’” The place was thick with blackberries and curtains of English ivy. It was the site of homeless encampments and, as DeJong later learned from authorities, sex trafficking and other criminal activities.

Transforming The Cheasty Greenspace (from front page) The Rainier Vista housing development, which sits just down the street from DeJong’s home, had yet to be gutted and revitalized into the mixed-use planned community that it is now. The parcel of urban forest next door became very much “a calling,” she says. DeJong is fueled by a set of values inspired by John Perkins, a civil rights activist who espouses the three Rs: relocation, redistribution, and reconciliation. As an undergraduate, DeJong was deeply inspired by his teachings; the John Perkins Center is located at Seattle Pacific University, where DeJong attended college. “One of his major calls is for people to relocate to places of diversity, to help be present to a greater good. Perkins doesn’t talk about landscape or land, but this land, in some way, had been oppressed.” In 2007, DeJong reached out to Seattle Parks and Recreation to find out what could be done. That led to the Green Seattle Partnership, which put her in contact with Andrea Ostrovsky, another neighborhood resident wanting to transform the land. The pair formed the Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View. “We started thinking about how we could reclaim and truly restore this land. And how we could reimagine it as something different,” she says.

In their early days of canvassing the neighborhood for support, DeJong and Ostrovsky were met with skepticism. “Cross-eyed looks,” DeJong recalls. Some neighbors were concerned that making the place attractive could invite a new wave of illicit behavior. And not everyone could picture what DeJong envisioned—not just restoration, but making the land accessible to pedestrians in the upper part of the neighborhood who wanted easier access to the Columbia City Link light rail station below. DeJong’s group secured three grants from Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods. They hosted work parties. They

hired a landscape architect. They thought about sightlines along the trails to make them safer. “And people started getting excited,” she says. Twenty-foot-high hedges of blackberry came down, and people at the top of the slope suddenly had views. It took 7,000 volunteer hours to transform the space into what it is today. The group won the Denny Award for Environmental Stewardship for its efforts. Now DeJong has her hands full with a more ambitious project: restoring the remaining 34 acres of the Cheasty Greenspace, on the east slope of Beacon Hill next to the Jefferson Park Golf Course. This is the future home of new pedestrian trails and Beacon Bike Park, a first-of-itskind mountain biking project in Seattle. “It’s about removing barriers of privilege to nature and to a sport,” DeJong says. The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners unanimously approved the $750,000 project in January. To win that approval, DeJong, her Steering committee, and community members worked tirelessly to convince the parks department to change its policy that banned bikes in green belts and natural areas. The board agreed to make Beacon Bike Park a pilot project. It is scheduled to open in June of 2015. “I feel like I’m a participant in an amazing story,” DeJong says. Volunteers have already offered almost $2 million worth of volunteer hours for forest restoration, trail building, and maintenance—including the development of Beacon Bike Park. She’s hoping for even more.
A Park for Hendrix Truth be told, Maisha Barnett is not a huge, over-the-top Jimi Hendrix fan, although she enjoys his music. “I didn’t grow up listening to him,” says Barnett, who is 43 years old. “My parents were not big rock fans. I came to learn about him as a student at Garfield High School, since he was an alumnus there.” These days, however, the legacy of the Seattle-born music icon occupies a lot of her time. Barnett is the project manager for Jimi Hendrix Park, which will sit on a corner behind the Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) in Seattle’s Central District. The site is currently part parking lot, part grassy field, and it sits adjacent to Sam Smith Park and the I-90 Trail. After the project is completed, park visitors will walk down a path in the shape of a giant electric guitar. “You’ll go into the frets, and there’ll be a timeline of Jimi’s life,” Barnett says. “There’ll also be a huge, sandblasted Jimi Hendrix signature,” she adds. “It’s big and confident. I kind of like that because I also have a hard time staying within the lines.” How Barnett ended up here—a former money manager who now devotes herself to community work—is the result of her involvement in another nearby park: Powell Barnett Park, a k a “Grandpa’s park.” Her grandfather was Powell S. Barnett, who worked in the coal mines of Roslyn, Washington, as a teen and who, after moving to Seattle in 1906, dedicated himself to a variety of civic causes. Not only did he bring whites and blacks together through the YMCA and the USO, but Barnett was also a musician and a semi-pro baseball player. In 1960, the city dedicated a 4.4-acre park on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in his honor. Powell Barnett died the following year. Maisha Barnett grew up thinking it was not a big deal to have a park named after her grandfather. But what was a big deal was when a group wanted to install some religious icons in the park and make some improvements—while bypassing the parks process. The city said no. Maisha Barnett: “superhero.”
At the time, Barnett was switching careers and completing a fundraising management program at the University of Washington. She was looking for a project. “So I said, ‘I’ll just do Powell Barnett Park!’ I didn’t know what I was doing. I had not done anything like that at all.” She went on to lead an effort that raised $1.3 million to dramatically renovate the park in 2006. “She’s a superhero. Can’t you see the cape on her?” says NAAM executive director Rosanna Sharpe. Outside the museum, looking out at what will soon be Jimi Hendrix Park, Barnett says: “I can’t wait to stand on the grounds when it’s all torn up and construction begins.” The project breaks ground in June.
It’s Time to Create a New Legacy Ken Bounds As of this writing, the Seattle City Council has an unprecedented opportunity to approve a ballot measure to establish a new parks district for Seattle. If approved by Seattle voters on August 5, the new parks district will replace the expiring levy with long-term, sustainable funding for our parks. That money will go toward replacing leaky roofs, old boilers, and outdated electrical and water systems. It will fund major maintenance at Woodland Park Zoo and the Seattle Aquarium and ensure cleaner restrooms and more trash pickup all over the city. Staffing and programs will be restored at community centers for kids and seniors. We will be able to restore forests, protect habitat, and acquire new parks and open space to meet the increased demands of our growing population. It’s time to pause and consider the historical context of this decision. I can think of four other times in Seattle’s history when citizens and elected officials have taken action to drastically shape our parks and recreation system. The first time was in 1903, when the city council hired the Olmsted Brothers firm to create a master plan for the city’s park system, setting in motion the development of one of the most admired park systems in the nation. The framework and major elements of the system we enjoy today were laid out and mostly designed by John Charles Olmsted. To this day, the Olmsted Plan guides park acquisition, development, and design decisions. Second, during the Works Progress Administration in the mid-1930s, the city took advantage of federal funding to develop many of the park system’s iconic structures and buildings, from the Ravenna Park Bridge to many of our most cherished “comfort stations.” Park trails, bridges, buildings, playgrounds, and many other improvements of the era are easy to spot in the park system to this day. Third, the citizen-led Forward Thrust initiatives in 1968 significantly expanded the Olmsted master plan by funding $475 million (in 2014 dollars) in new parks and park improvements. Freeway Park, the Seattle Aquarium, and numerous neighborhood pocket parks were developed with Forward Thrust funds. At around the same time, citizens approved a charter amendment to dedicate 10 percent of certain city revenues to the Park Fund to pay for the ongoing maintenance and operations of the new Forward Thrust parks. Today, one-third of the parks department’s budget comes from charter amendment revenues.
Ken Bounds is former superintendent of Seattle Parks and Recreation, a Washington State Parks Commissioner, member of the Seattle Parks Foundation board, and chair of Seattle Parks for All.
Fourth, at the request of city officials and Seattle citizens in 1986, the state legislature changed the “levy lid lift” law to allow Seattle to access unused property tax levy capacity with a 50 percent vote of the people. Until then, all capital bond issues were “excess levies” and required 60 percent voter approval. This change allowed for two subsequent community center levies and two “Parks for All” levies that have greatly enhanced the park system over the past three decades. It’s time to create a new legacy. For the first time in Seattle’s history, we have an opportunity to provide a dedicated, sustainable revenue stream for parks. In fact, a parks district is the only dedicated, sustainable funding source available to the city that can meet the park system’s needs—as the Parks Legacy Plan Citizens’ Advisory Committee, Mayor Ed Murray, and the city council have worked so diligently to identify. We must seize this moment and create a new legacy for future generations.
Over the last year, the Stim Bullitt Park Excellence Fund, made possible by a generous bequest from one of our city’s greatest public space champions, awarded $500,000 to nine communityled public space projects. We applaud the vision, dedication, and generosity of community volunteers, philanthropic partners, and public agencies who are working together to connect our city through great public spaces. In March, four very different park projects received support from the Stim Bullitt Park Excellence Fund: Jimi Hendrix Park Located behind the Northwest African American Jimi Hendrix Park supporters dress the part. Museum and providing a connection along the I-90 Trail, the park will honor the iconic musician and serve as a site for community gatherings and concerts. Yesler Swamp Trail The Friends of Yesler Swamp are working to build a system of trails and boardwalks in the area adjacent to the Union Bay Natural Area. The trails will provide access to one of Seattle’s best bird-watching sites and last remaining wetland forests. Kubota Garden Terrace Overlook UW student volunteers dig in at Yelser Swamp.
In August, 14th- and 15th-generation stone masons from Japan will teach and work with community members to construct the overlook. The project, using more than 300 tons of High Cascade Granite, will create a viewpoint and event space in one of Seattle’s most stunning public gardens. Terminal 117

A New Vision for South Park Green Space The heavily industrial South Park neighborhood, bordered on one side by the Duwamish River, has less park space than almost any other community in Seattle. It offers just 40 square feet of accessible open space per resident—compared to 387 square feet per resident for Seattle as a whole. But as the kids from Concord Elementary School exclaimed at a recent public hearing, “We can make anything better!” The Port of Seattle, King County, City of Seattle, and other property owners along the river are cleaning up contaminated sites, restoring miles of shoreline habitat, and creating new public access on public lands. Collectively, these projects provide the opportunity to reshape and connect a neighborhood through its public spaces. Seizing this opportunity, the South Park Area Redevelopment Committee, South Park Neighborhood Association, Environmental Coalition of South Seattle, Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition, Sea Mar Community Health Centers, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Barker Landscape Architects, and Seattle Parks Foundation have completed an aspirational plan for a network of connected green space in the South Park neighborhood, including new and improved access to Seattle’s only river. Through broad outreach to residents and businesses and funding from the Stim Bullitt Park Excellence Fund, the community has identified needs, opportunities, and priorities for improved parklands, open space, and recreational facilities in South Park. The plan offers concept designs for top-priority opportunities such as a new plaza adjacent to the new South Park Bridge, Duwamish Waterway Park, South Park Community Center, shoreline street ends, and overall pedestrian and bicycle connectivity throughout the neighborhood.

The plan will be used by South Park community groups, civic leaders, public agencies, and SPF to guide actions and investments over the next 5 years.
New Projects, New Partners Cayton Corner Park The Friends of Cayton Corner Park are creating a fully accessible park and sensory garden at the corner of 19th Avenue and Madison Street on Capitol Hill. This community gathering space will be a tranquil, green oasis for an ethnically diverse, low- to moderateincome neighborhood that includes clients of the DeafBlind Service Center, Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults, and the Hearing, Speech & Deafness Center. The Friends received neighborhood matching funds from the city to hire J.A. Brennan and Carolyn Law to complete a schematic design and a preliminary cost estimate for the planned park. They are now seeking additional funds to complete the project.
We will make it happen!
Columbia City Gateway The Friends of Columbia City Gateway will transform a public-space eyesore in a heavily trafficked pedestrain corridor into a signature streetscape and mini-park that will serve as an entryway into the Columbia City neighborhood. Located on the Seattle School Districtâ€™s Columbia School property (currently home to the Interagency Academy) along a three-block stretch of Edmunds Street (seasonal home of the bustling Columbia City Farmerâ€™s Market), the park will connect the light rail station to the thriving neighborhood business district. A new PCC grocery store and mixed-use development are under construction directly across the street. In conjunction with this project, the Interagency Academy intends to refurbish its community garden. The Friends received city grant funds to hire Johnson Sutherland to develop a schematic plan and are now raising funds to complete the project. New connections in Columbia City.
Community Partner Fundraising Tops $1 Million Over the past three years, SPF Community Partners have raised more than $1 million to add to and improve Seattle’s parks, trails, playgrounds, and forest habitat. From Bitter Lake to South Park and from View Ridge to Golden Gardens, these extraordinary volunteer groups have also matched their remarkable fundraising with thousands of hours of volunteer work.

Donor Spotlight: Denis Adair Denis Adair walks Elphie through Volunteer Park every day, rain or shine. He also donates to Volunteer Park Trust each month in honor of Elphie. “I rescued her when she was 5 months old in 2003, from a shelter in East Los Angeles,” says Adair. “It was (puppy) love at first sight.” Adair and Elphie lived in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, with a backyard and 20 acres of open land. After they moved to Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood 7 years ago, Volunteer Park became the place for them to enjoy nature and to seek serenity (and squirrels, for Elphie). “I take immense pride and joy in this exquisite city park,” says Adair. “There is an abundance of awe in Volunteer Park: the magnificent lawns and trees, owls and hawks, the Conservatory, the Asian Art Museum, and the outdoor theater in summer.” Denis Adair and Elphie in Volunteer Park.
Like many of us who claim a favorite neighborhood park as “our park,” Adair has found his piece of what belongs to all of us, and he is giving back. “Volunteer Park is a magic forest that Elphie and I get to explore every day,” he says. “It makes a beautiful and profound difference in our lives.”
Donor Spotlight: The Matsui Family Melvin Matsui loved the outdoors and often walked the family dog, Bailey, at Seward Park. After his death in April 2013, at age 68, his son Kitman felt drawn to the park, too. “Since being outdoors is always something I associate with our father, I spent a great deal of time walking along Lake Washington following his death,” says Kitman, one of Mel’s six children.

Kitman suggested to his family members that they donate a park bench in memory of Mel, and he got in touch with SPF to set up a fund. The new bench at Seward Park faces south toward Mount Rainier. “It seemed like a good idea to have a particular place we can call our own and, more importantly, a place where he would enjoy being,” Kitman says. The bench serves as a place where the Matsui family can come together for picnics and share great memories of their father, which include fishing and camping together and going on road trips.
Thank you! Parks Legacy Circle

Seattle “fans of the fans” Shana Pennington-Baird and Amanda Quinn
Amid the revelry downtown after the Seahawks Super Bowl victory on February 2, 25 glass panels in the historic pergola at Seattle’s Pioneer Park were broken. Amanda Quinn took action to make sure the structure was quickly repaired. With help from Shana Pennington-Baird and Gretchen Drew, Quinn initiated an online crowd-funding campaign and collected $16,000 from 575 donors in a single day. Complementing that nimble fundraising effort, Western Washington Honda Dealers pitched in $10,000. Restoration work is in progress, and any remaining funds after the repairs are completed will be directed to park and green space improvements and repairs around Pioneer Square.
