City of Seattle

In 2007, Seattle Parks Foundation updated “Bands of Green,” a report which proposes a system of linear parks, trails, and other ‘green connections’ across the city in the spirit of the Olmsted Brothers’ 1903 Plan for Seattle’s Park System. The Cheshiahud Lake Union Loop is a six-mile multi-use public corridor around Lake Union that will complete a key piece of the Olmsted Brothers’ Plan. It will create safe and attractive access to the lake—connect Gas Works and Lake Union Parks, link more than 35 pocket parks, street ends and waterways that ring the lake, and improve access from adjacent neighborhoods, downtown and the University of Washington.

MacLeod Reckord worked in close collaboration with Seattle Parks, SDOT, Seattle Parks Foundation, and the Office of Policy and Management, along with a wide variety of neighborhood groups and stakeholders, to develop a plan that captures the spirit of both the Olmsted Plan and the jewel that is Lake Union.
