Friends of Seward Park

We are a group of citizens working together to preserve and protect the unique habitat and cultural legacy of this historic park.

Seward Park lies in a “neighborhood of nations where Somali children study the Koran a few blocks from the largest Orthodox synagogue in Seattle; where fourth-generation Italians and newly arrived South Asians shop at stores owned by second-generation Vietnamese; and where Ethiopian wat and Filipino halo-halo are as easy to find as pizza and sushi.” [from HistoryLink.org].

We value and promote this rich cultural mix, working to make Seward Park available to all – just as we work to protect and promote the biological diversity of Seward’s old-growth Magnificent Forest, Clark’s Prairie, and Lake Washington.

We welcome participation, suggestions, volunteer effort – at any level, in any form, in any of our projects, as well as proposals for new ones. Come join us!

We meet on the 2nd Saturday every month (except July and August) from 9:30 to 11:00 am, at the Seward Park Audubon Center near the park entrance. During the covid-19 pandemic we meet by zoom.
