Join the City of Shoreline, neighbors and community gardeners in celebrating the grand opening of the Community Garden at Sunset School Park located at 17800 10th Avenue NW. After a short ceremony, the garden will be dedicated and open for use.

Construction of the community garden finishes this week. The shed, all 34 garden beds and pathways will be open for use beginning April 1. A dedication ceremony will take place at 10am on Saturday, April 5.

Bids open for a Phase 2 contractor on April 3. Construction is anticipated to begin in May to construct a new accessible pathway between the lower and upper fields, tot play equipment and swings, half court basketball court, and athletic field improvements.

The city successfully received a $65,000 Youth Sports Facilities grant from King County to help implement the Phase 2 project.

The site was dedicated on October 19, 2013 as a new park in the Shoreline park system. A community garden of approximately 30 plots was constructed in March to complete the Phase I improvement project.

Overview and History

Sunset Elementary School closed in 2007 and the community, led by the Friends of Sunset Park, have worked for several years to bring their vision of a park on the site a reality. A Master Plan was adopted by City Council in June 2010. The School Board approved a resolution declaring that the Sunset site is not currently required for school purposes and authorizing the temporary surplus of the property and demolition of the buildings. In January 2013 the City Council adopted the Sunset School site as an addendum to the Shoreline School District/City of Shoreline Joint Use Agreement to allow the City to maintain the site as a public park; while still being owned by the Shoreline School District.
