About Us

Over a decade in the making, Waterfront Seattle is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to fulfill the public’s vision for our city’s waterfront: beautiful public spaces for all, a salmon-friendly seawall, and year-round activities for culture, education, and fun. Seattle’s future waterfront will be a lively mixing ground for our community while nurturing our nearshore environment. 

Friends of Waterfront Seattle (“Friends”) is the nonprofit partner to the City of Seattle responsible for helping to fund, build, steward, and program the park – today and into the future. In addition to raising $110M by 2024 to fund park construction, Friends will support the ongoing operations of the future Waterfront Park though a joint delivery partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation. Park construction begins after the Viaduct's removal and the first piece of the park — Pier 62 — will open in early 2020.
