We Need to Hear from You!

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to learn about the future of the Lowman Beach Park seawall. Please join us at the upcoming Open House. Lowman Beach Park is located at 7017 Beach Dr. SW, just north of Lincoln Park.

The Lowman Beach Park seawall is failing and needs to be removed or replaced. As visitors to the park have seen, the existing seawall is slowly falling over towards the water. It is Seattle Parks and Recreation’s goal to remove the remaining seawall and continue the shoreline restoration work that began when the south half of the seawall failed in the mid-1990s.

We hired Environmental Science Associates (ESA) as a design consultant to undertake a feasibility study to look at options for removing the seawall, taking into consideration both the habitat benefits of the seawall removal and the coastal engineering ramifications of that seawall removal. Given the design constraints of the project, it is likely that the existing tennis court will remain in place. At this meeting we will present our background, analysis of the coastal processes (wind, waves, tides, sediment transport/littoral drift) and design options to gather community input.
