All About South Park

Welcome to “The Park”

South Park Seattle is a small neighborhood with a big voice. Nearly 4,000 people live, work, study, play, farm, and raise families in this river-hugging community wedged at the heart of the Duwamish Valley industrial corridor. Students, parents, business owners, artists, machinists, environmentalists, and civic leaders all call South Park home.

Seattle’s only riverfront neighborhood is also home to the city’s only working farm: Marra Farm, which generates tons of fresh, organic produce each year. The popular South Park Community Center offers numerous activities that are open to the public, including recreation and sports, after school and senior activities, and community events and meetings.

Environmental stewardship is present in the South Park consciousness. Despite the proximate Duwamish Waterway Superfund site, residents envision a cleaner, greener future for their community and for the Duwamish River wildlife corridor. Anyone can join the residents of South Park to participate in the annual Duwamish Alive! community cleanup events.

Neighborhood parks provide islands of open space for play, gatherings, and relaxation, including the Duwamish Waterway Park, Cesar Chavez Park, South Park Playground, and Marra-Desimone Park, plus the newly constructed River City Skate Park for skate rats.


CityStream South Park Special

On this special CityStream, we celebrate South Park! Learn about the many different businesses in the area; from wineries to restaurants to industry. With the bridge out, many people ask: “How do you get to South Park?” It`s easy to access, but see how some residents are getting creative when it comes to their commutes. Then learn how one man isn`t waiting for the government to step in and clean up the Duwamish River. Find out about more fun events from the South Park neighborhood with host Penny LeGate in this special South Park CityStream. (March 17, 2011)
