Love Garfield Super Block

Pathways Park community...please read and learn about how we can support this beautiful community-led project. They are also working to create a place of belonging for all.

Located in the heart of the Central Area, the Garfield Super Block has been a gathering place for community for many years, with a rich history of events, people and movements.


The Garfield Super Block (GSB) project has been working in community for over 20 years to improve accessibility and amenities throughout the park and to complete the Legacy and Promise Promenade: a pathway that integrates art from each of the seven different cultural groups that are historically represented in the area. These artworks will tell the history of the area and reflect the communities’ pride in their cultural backgrounds.


GSB works in partnership with many of Pathway Park’s partners. They are receiving project management support from Seattle Parks and Recreation, are fiscally sponsored by Seattle Parks Foundation and the design is being led by our favorite designers, Site Workshop.


The GSB project has always provided for community in times of celebration and in times of need. The community is disproportionately affected by the physically, emotionally and mentally disabling impacts of racism, ableism, classism and gun violence. Despite many injustices and so much heartbreak, the community continues to overcome by embracing joy, hope and belonging. They are honoring their history while dreaming of a more equitable future. This park and promenade will be a beautiful space for community to gather and find what we now have at Pathways Park: a safe and welcoming place for all.


They have raised $10 million and need $2.2 million more to build their amazing dream.

 

For those who can donate please consider supporting this special, community-led project.

 

For other ways to support, you can check out Garfield Super Block’s website, read their recent feature in the Seattle Times, follow them on Instagram or Facebook and send them loads of love and congratulations.


We love you, GSB!
