Thornton Creek Park Six Funding

Thornton Creek Park Six is in the final round for obtaining 2008 Parks and Open Space Opportunity Fund money. Our urban, seven-acre natural area, just two blocks east of Northgate Mall and home to beavers, kingfishers, pileated woodpeckers, and much more, is this close to receiving $500,000.00 from the fund.

The Thornton Creek Alliance sponsored the application, and the money will be used to establish a formal park entrance at the corner of NE 103rd St. and 5th Ave. NE, complete all the creek channel work necessary for a healthy riparian environment, and replace rampant invasives with native plants. This is one of only two NE Seattle projects to get this far in the process.

There was an October 25th meeting to show support (which I unfortunately missed getting the post up in time for) but testimonial e-mails are also accepted until Nov. 17th. They should go to The tracking number for our project, Naturalizing Northgate, is 35D-2010.
