Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community input on Phase II Renovations at Be’er Sheva Park

Seattle, WA-Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to help shape the next phase of renovations at Be’er Sheva Park. Phase II will focus on renovating the play area, resurfacing the basketball court, and installing a new accessible path with a fitness zone. Please join us and provide input at one of our upcoming events: 

  • Sunday, June 9, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. tabling at the Rainier Beach Community Center for the Recreating Henderson Street project. 

  • Friday, June 21, from 12 to 4 p.m. tabling at the Rainier Beach Community Center – Campus Plaza for the BE SAFE Block Party. 

  • Sunday, June 30, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Be’er Sheva Park. 

We want to hear from you on how the amenities(play area, basketball court, and fitness zone) should be designed, what makes them great, what’s missing, and how we can best incorporate new features. Additionally, we invite the community to participate in a short survey for this phase at Be’er Sheva Park. Please visit:

Following the events, the Site Workshop design team will develop several options reflecting the community’s top priorities for the renovation. New site furnishings, including picnic tables/benches, barbeques, bike racks, and other park elements to welcome community gatherings will be incorporated into the design. This project may include other related improvements to enhance safety, accessibility, and natural areas as budget allows. 

Be’er Sheva Park is located in southeast Seattle on the shores of Lake Washington at 8650 55th Ave S. For more information on the event and project please visit or contact Shaquan Smith at
