Transforming the Cheasty Greenspace

When Mary DeJong and her husband Joel, moved to Seattle

more than a decade ago, they fell in love with their neighbor-

hood. “We knew we needed to be here,” DeJong says, stand-

ing outside her home in Rainier Valley. “We also knew that we

wanted to participate in something, and at the time we couldn’t

really name what that something was.”

That something turned out to be half a block away, just up her

street: 10 acres of forest between the Lockmore neighborhood

on Beacon Hill and Columbia City. This is the Cheasty Greens-

pace at Mountain View, whose slopes are now covered with ferns

and other young native plants. A winding footpath reveals peek-a-boo views of the Cascades

and takes hikers past benches made of cedar logs. It’s a place where DeJong and her daughter,

Anna, hike (and where Anna gets excited when she finds a slug). It’s an escape for DeJong’s two

boys, who outfit themselves with whistles and play. It’s also a destination for groups from the

nearby Boys & Girls Club and the Refugee Women’s Alliance, who participate in wilderness


But back in 2003, when it was just DeJong, her husband, and a black Labrador named Jackson,

this place looked totally different.

“It was a drape of darkness,” DeJong recalls. “We had a dog, and we thought, ‘Oh, let’s take

him into the woods.’ And it was on that first walk when we discovered, ‘Oh, this isn’t a wel-

coming place.’”

The place was thick with blackberries and curtains of English ivy. It was the site of homeless

encampments and, as DeJong later learned from authorities, sex trafficking and other criminal

The Rainier Vista housing development, which sits just down the street from DeJong’s home,

had yet to be gutted and revitalized into the mixed-use planned community that it is now.

The parcel of urban forest next door became very much “a calling,” she says.

DeJong is fueled by a set of values inspired by John Perkins, a civil rights activist who espouses

the three Rs: relocation, redistribution, and reconciliation. As an undergraduate, DeJong was

deeply inspired by his teachings; the John Perkins Center is located at Seattle Pacific University,

where DeJong attended college.

“One of his major calls is for people to relocate to places of diversity, to help be present to a

greater good. Perkins doesn’t talk about landscape or land, but this land, in some way, had

been oppressed.”

In 2007, DeJong reached out to Seattle Parks and Recreation to find out what could be done.

That led to the Green Seattle Partnership, which put her in contact with Andrea Ostrovsky,

another neighborhood resident wanting to transform the land.

The pair formed the Friends of Cheasty Greenspace at Mountain View.

“We started thinking about how we could reclaim and truly restore this land. And how we

could reimagine it as something different,” she says.

In their early days of canvassing the neighborhood for support, DeJong and Ostrovsky were met

with skepticism. “Cross-eyed looks,” DeJong recalls. Some neighbors were concerned that mak-

ing the place attractive could invite a new wave of illicit behavior. And not everyone could picture

what DeJong envisioned—not just restoration, but making

the land accessible to pedestrians in the upper part of the

neighborhood who wanted easier access to the Columbia

City Link light rail station below.

DeJong’s group secured three grants from Seattle’s Depart-

ment of Neighborhoods. They hosted work parties. They

hired a landscape architect. They thought about sightlines along the trails to make them safer.

“And people started getting excited,” she says.

Twenty-foot-high hedges of blackberry came down, and people at the top of the slope suddenly

had views.

It took 7,000 volunteer hours to transform the space into what it is today. The group won the

Denny Award for Environmental Stewardship for its efforts.

Now DeJong has her hands full with a more ambitious project: restoring the remaining 34 acres

of the Cheasty Greenspace, on the east slope of Beacon Hill next to the Jefferson Park Golf

Course. This is the future home of new pedestrian trails and Beacon Bike Park, a first-of-its-

kind mountain biking project in Seattle.

“It’s about removing barriers of privilege to nature and to a sport,” DeJong says.

The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners unanimously approved the $750,000 project in

January. To win that approval, DeJong, her Steering committee, and community members

worked tirelessly to convince the parks department to change its policy that banned bikes in

green belts and natural areas.

The board agreed to make Beacon Bike Park a pilot project. It is scheduled to open in June

of 2015.

“I feel like I’m a participant in an amazing story,” DeJong says. Volunteers have already offered

almost $2 million worth of volunteer hours for forest restoration, trail building, and mainte-

nance—including the development of Beacon Bike Park. She’s hoping for even more.

A Park for HendrixTruth be told, Maisha Barnett is not a huge, over-the-top Jimi Hendrix fan, although she enjoys

his music.

“I didn’t grow up listening to him,” says Barnett, who is 43 years old. “My parents were not

big rock fans. I came to learn about him as a student at Garfield High School, since he was an

alumnus there.”

These days, however, the legacy of the Seattle-born music icon occupies a lot of her time.

Barnett is the project manager for Jimi Hendrix Park, which will sit on a corner behind the

Northwest African American Museum (NAAM) in Seattle’s Central District.

The site is currently part parking lot, part grassy field, and it sits adjacent to Sam

Smith Park and the I-90 Trail. After the project is completed, park visitors will

walk down a path in the shape of a giant electric guitar. “You’ll go into the frets,

and there’ll be a timeline of Jimi’s life,” Barnett says.

“There’ll also be a huge, sandblasted Jimi Hendrix signature,” she adds. “It’s big

and confident. I kind of like that because I also have a hard time staying within

the lines.”

How Barnett ended up here—a former money manager who now devotes herself

to community work—is the result of her involvement in another nearby park:

Powell Barnett Park, a k a “Grandpa’s park.”

Her grandfather was Powell S. Barnett, who worked in the coal mines of Roslyn,

Washington, as a teen and who, after moving to Seattle in 1906, dedicated himself

to a variety of civic causes. Not only did he bring whites and blacks together

through the YMCA and the USO, but Barnett was also a musician and a semi-pro

baseball player.

In 1960, the city dedicated a 4.4-acre park on Martin Luther King Jr. Way in his

honor. Powell Barnett died the following year. Maisha Barnett grew up thinking it

was not a big deal to have a park named after her grandfather. But what was a big

deal was when a group wanted to install some religious icons in the park and make

some improvements—while bypassing the parks process. The city said no.

At the time, Barnett was switching careers and completing a fundraising management program

at the University of Washington. She was looking for a project. “So I said, ‘I’ll just do Powell

Barnett Park!’ I didn’t know what I was doing. I had not done anything like that at all.” She

went on to lead an effort that raised $1.3 million to dramatically renovate the park in 2006.

“She’s a superhero. Can’t you see the cape on her?” says NAAM executive director Rosanna


Outside the museum, looking out at what will soon be Jimi Hendrix Park, Barnett says: “I can’t

wait to stand on the grounds when it’s all torn up and construction begins.”

The project breaks ground in June.

Maisha Barnett: “superhero.”

It’s Time to Create a New Legacy Ken Bounds

As of this writing, the Seattle City Council has an unprecedented opportunity to approve a ballot

measure to establish a new parks district for Seattle. If approved by Seattle voters on August 5, the

new parks district will replace the expiring levy with long-term, sustainable funding for our parks.

That money will go toward replacing leaky roofs, old boilers, and outdated electrical and water sys-

tems. It will fund major maintenance at Woodland Park Zoo and the Seattle Aquarium and ensure

cleaner restrooms and more trash pickup all over the city. Staffing and programs will be restored at

community centers for kids and seniors. We will be able to restore forests, protect habitat, and acquire

new parks and open space to meet the increased demands of our growing population.

It’s time to pause and consider the historical context of this decision. I can think of four other

times in Seattle’s history when citizens and elected officials have taken action to drastically

shape our parks and recreation system.

The first time was in 1903, when the city council hired the Olmsted Brothers firm to create a

master plan for the city’s park system, setting in motion the development of one of the most

admired park systems in the nation. The framework and major elements of the system we enjoy

today were laid out and mostly designed by John Charles Olmsted. To this day, the Olmsted

Plan guides park acquisition, development, and design decisions.

Second, during the Works Progress Administration in the mid-1930s, the city took advantage

of federal funding to develop many of the park system’s iconic structures and buildings, from

the Ravenna Park Bridge to many of our most cherished “comfort stations.” Park trails, bridges,

buildings, playgrounds, and many other improvements of the era are easy to spot in the park

system to this day.

Third, the citizen-led Forward Thrust initiatives in 1968 significantly expanded the Olmsted

master plan by funding $475 million (in 2014 dollars) in new parks and park improvements.

Freeway Park, the Seattle Aquarium, and numerous neighborhood pocket parks were developed

with Forward Thrust funds. At around the same time, citizens approved a charter amendment

to dedicate 10 percent of certain city revenues to the Park Fund to pay for the ongoing mainte-

nance and operations of the new Forward Thrust parks. Today, one-third of the parks depart-

ment’s budget comes from charter amendment revenues.

Fourth, at the request of city officials and Seattle citizens in 1986, the state legislature changed

the “levy lid lift” law to allow Seattle to access unused property tax levy capacity with a 50 percent

vote of the people. Until then, all capital bond issues were “excess levies” and required 60 percent

voter approval. This change allowed for two subsequent community center levies and two “Parks

for All” levies that have greatly enhanced the park system over the past three decades.

It’s time to create a new legacy. For the first time in Seattle’s history, we have an opportunity

to provide a dedicated, sustainable revenue stream for parks. In fact, a parks district is the

only dedicated, sustainable funding source available to the city that can meet the park system’s

needs—as the Parks Legacy Plan Citizens’ Advisory Committee, Mayor Ed Murray, and the

city council have worked so diligently to identify. We must seize this moment and create a new

legacy for future generations.

Ken Bounds is former superintendent of Seattle Parks and Recreation, a Washington State Parks Commissioner, member of the Seattle Parks Foundation board, and chair of Seattle Parks for All.

Over the last year, the Stim Bullitt Park Excellence Fund, made possible by a generous bequest

from one of our city’s greatest public space champions, awarded $500,000 to nine community-

led public space projects.

We applaud the vision, dedication, and generosity of community

volunteers, philanthropic partners, and public agencies who are

working together to connect our city through great public spaces.

In March, four very different park projects received support from

the Stim Bullitt Park Excellence Fund:

Jimi Hendrix Park

Located behind the Northwest African American

Museum and providing a connection along the I-90

Trail, the park will honor the iconic musician

and serve as a site for community gatherings and concerts.

Yesler Swamp Trail

The Friends of Yesler Swamp are working to build a system of trails and boardwalks

in the area adjacent to the Union Bay Natural Area. The trails will provide access to

one of Seattle’s best bird-watching sites and last remaining wetland forests.

Kubota Garden Terrace Overlook

In August, 14th- and 15th-generation stone masons

from Japan will teach and work with community mem-

bers to construct the overlook. The project, using more

than 300 tons of High Cascade Granite, will create a

viewpoint and event space in one of Seattle’s most

stunning public gardens.

Terminal 117

As a result of this award, the project to restore fish and wildlife habitat at Terminal

117—an EPA Superfund site just two blocks from the South Park neighborhood’s

commercial core—will include pathways, a boardwalk, a pier, an elevated viewing

platform, and a hand-carry boat launch.

Join the Legacy Circle

Seattle Parks Foundation established the Legacy Circle to ensure that bequests, both large and small, have a significant impact on Seattle’s public spaces. A growing group of visionary park champions who care deeply about our city have included SPF in their estate plans. We hope you’ll consider joining them.

As a Legacy Circle member, you will receive annual acknowledgement in SPF publications, invi-tations to donor events, and the tremendous gratitude of park lovers around the city. To learn more or to let us know that SPF is already in your plans, contact Betsey Curran at (206) 332-9900 x15 or [emailprotected].

A New Vision for South Park Green Space The heavily industrial South Park neighborhood, bordered on one side by the Duwamish

River, has less park space than almost any other community in Seattle. It offers just 40 square

feet of accessible open space per resident—compared to 387 square feet per resident for Seattle

as a whole.

But as the kids from Concord Elementary School exclaimed at a recent public hearing, “We

can make anything better!”

The Port of Seattle, King County, City of Seattle, and other property owners along the river are

cleaning up contaminated sites, restoring miles of shoreline habitat, and creating new public

access on public lands. Collectively, these projects provide the opportunity to reshape and con-

nect a neighborhood through its public spaces.

Seizing this opportunity, the South Park Area Redevelopment Committee, South Park Neigh-

borhood Association, Environmental Coalition of South Seattle, Duwamish River Cleanup

Coalition, Sea Mar Community Health Centers, Seattle Parks and Recreation, Barker Land-

scape Architects, and Seattle Parks Foundation have completed an aspirational plan for a net-

work of connected green space in the South Park neighborhood, including new and improved

access to Seattle’s only river.

Through broad outreach to residents and businesses and funding from the Stim Bullitt

Park Excellence Fund, the community has identified needs, opportunities, and priorities for

improved parklands, open space, and recreational facilities in South Park. The plan offers con-

cept designs for top-priority opportunities such as a new plaza adjacent to the new South Park

Bridge, Duwamish Waterway Park, South Park Community Center, shoreline street ends, and

overall pedestrian and bicycle connectivity throughout the neighborhood.

The plan will be used by South Park community groups, civic leaders, public agencies, and SPF

to guide actions and investments over the next 5 years. Concord Elementary students at a public hearing.

New Projects, New Partners

Cayton Corner Park

The Friends of Cayton Corner Park are creating a fully accessible park and sensory garden at

the corner of 19th Avenue and Madison Street on Capitol

Hill. This community gathering space will be a tranquil,

green oasis for an ethnically diverse, low- to moderate-

income neighborhood that includes clients of the Deaf-

Blind Service Center, Helen Keller National Center for

Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults, and the Hearing, Speech &

Deafness Center.

The Friends received neighborhood matching funds from

the city to hire J.A. Brennan and Carolyn Law to complete

a schematic design and a preliminary cost estimate for the

planned park. They are now seeking additional funds to

complete the project.

Columbia City Gateway

The Friends of Columbia City Gateway will transform a public-space eyesore in a heavily

trafficked pedestrain corridor into a signature streetscape and mini-park that will serve as an

entryway into the Columbia City neighborhood.

Located on the Seattle School District’s Columbia School property (currently home to the

Interagency Academy) along a three-block stretch of Edmunds Street (seasonal home of the

bustling Columbia City Farmer’s Market), the park will connect the light rail station to the

thriving neighborhood business

district. A new PCC grocery store

and mixed-use development are

under construction directly across

the street.

In conjunction with this project,

the Interagency Academy intends

to refurbish its community garden.

The Friends received city grant

funds to hire Johnson Sutherland

to develop a schematic plan and

are now raising funds to complete

the project.

We will make it happen!

Donor Spotlight: Denis Adair

Denis Adair walks Elphie through Volunteer Park every day, rain or shine. He also

donates to Volunteer Park Trust each month in honor of Elphie.

“I rescued her when she was 5 months old in 2003, from a shelter in East Los

Angeles,” says Adair. “It was (puppy) love at first sight.”

Adair and Elphie lived in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, with a

backyard and 20 acres of open land. After they moved to Seattle’s Capitol Hill

neighborhood 7 years ago, Volunteer Park became the place for them to enjoy

nature and to seek serenity (and squirrels, for Elphie).

“I take immense pride and joy in this exquisite city park,” says Adair. “There is

an abundance of awe in Volunteer Park: the magnificent lawns and trees, owls

and hawks, the Conservatory, the Asian Art Museum, and the outdoor theater in


Like many of us who claim a favorite neighborhood park as “our park,” Adair has

found his piece of what belongs to all of us, and he is giving back. “Volunteer Park

is a magic forest that Elphie and I get to explore every day,” he says. “It makes a

beautiful and profound difference in our lives.”

Come share the harvest on July 27 at Urban Farm Fling in Rainier Beach!

Donor Spotlight: The Matsui Family

Melvin Matsui loved the outdoors and often walked

the family dog, Bailey, at Seward Park. After his

death in April 2013, at age 68, his son Kitman felt

drawn to the park, too.

“Since being outdoors is always something I associate

with our father, I spent a great deal of time walking

along Lake Washington following his death,” says

Kitman, one of Mel’s six children.

Kitman suggested to his family members that they donate a park bench in memory of Mel, and he got

in touch with SPF to set up a fund. The new bench at Seward Park faces south toward Mount Rainier.

“It seemed like a good idea to have a particular place we can call our own and, more importantly, a

place where he would enjoy being,” Kitman says.

The bench serves as a place where the Matsui family can come together for picnics and share great

memories of their father, which include fishing and camping together and going on road trips.

Amid the revelry downtown after the Seahawks Super Bowl victory on February 2, 25 glass panels in the historic pergola at Seattle’s Pioneer Park were broken. Amanda Quinn took action to make sure the structure was quickly repaired. With help from Shana Pennington-Baird and Gretchen Drew, Quinn initiated an online crowd-funding campaign and collected $16,000 from 575 donors in a single day. Complementing that nimble fundraising effort, Western Washington Honda Dealers pitched in $10,000. Restoration work is in progress, and any remaining funds after the repairs are completed will be directed to park and green space improvements and repairs around Pioneer Square.
