FOLLOWUP: Fencing removed at Lowman Beach Park

(WSB photo, this morning)

2:29 PM: If you’re looking forward to full access at Lowman Beach Park now that the seawall-removal/habitat-restoration project is over, you don’t have long to wait. More of the fencing has been removed – the south section that had temporarily displayed art by Gatewood Elementary fourth-graders – and the rest, which is mostly near the park’s big trees, will be down soon, confirms Seattle Parks spokesperson Karen O’Connor: “The fencing on Lowman Beach should all be down this week and the district crew will finish mowing around the trees to make the area more accessible to the public. The grass did get long during the construction.” The construction lasted about eight months, which was the duration estimated when work on the $1.2 million project began last fall.

7:50 PM: Just went by again – the rest of the fencing is now gone.

    Lowman is incredible! They did a great job, and the beach is better than ever. The grassy area is amazing – full view of the water and also good ADA access and benches. It was awesome to spend time there this weekend.

    I went by this weekend and the site is terrific! Tons of people enjoying the beach and grassy area.  The beach so spectacular with the seawall gone.

    Looks wonderful. The benches used to have plaques with the donor’s names. Were they saved?  If so, will they be reinstalled?  I liked thinking about those kind people when I sat on “their” bench.
