All About South Park


Catch the Culture!

South Park is home to everyday visionaries who are parents, immigrants, and entrepreneurs. Together we envision a safe, prosperous neighborhood for families and businesses alike. Our 1998 Urban Village Plan targeted 160+ community goals. Today we celebrate our accomplishments and continue identifying new goals.

Embracing Our Future

South Park has a strong history of community action, starting with our very first South Park Improvement Clubs. When our neighborhood is in need, we work together to form a plan of action.

In 1998 we drafted the South Park Residential Urban Village Plan, which defined our goals for Seattle’s Comprehensive Plan: Toward a Sustainable Seattle. The South Park Action Agenda (SPAA) was drafted in 2006 when, following the shooting of a 16-year-old boy, the City of Seattle convened a group of community and business leaders, service providers, and residents to launch a planning effort.

Our efforts in 2006 generated the SPAA: a coordinated document that prioritizes strong and healthy families, a thriving business district, and a safe, environmentally friendly and visually attractive community, while preserving a strong sense of community identity and respect for neighborhood diversity.
