We acknowledge that the Burke Gilman Playground Park is on Indigenous land. These are the traditional unceded territories of the Coast Salish People, specifically the Duwamish People. We honor with gratitude the past, present and future of our Indigenous Family.
Sweet Eli entered the world and changed everything. His life was a testament to the beauty and benefits of inclusion. In the not-quite four years Eli had, he left a path to follow toward a more inclusive world. The Eli’s Park Project is committed to carrying on his legacy of love through a community-led renovation of the Burke-Gilman Playground Park. We are working with our community to create an accessible, inclusive, nature-based park where people of all ages and abilities can find play and peace.

The Eli’s Park Project team wants to feature you in our Gratitude Grove! Currently under design by artist Hannah Viano, this permanent park feature will be a playful and artful celebration of the many, many people who gave something of themselves for the benefit of all.
Our virtual Gratitude Grove allows us to thank all the community organizations and foundations who've supported the project through sharing ideas, giving feedback, contributing donations, grantmaking and showing support in a variety of ways. We appreciate you all!
