Warren G. Magnuson Park

Location: Seattle, WA
Client: Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation Commission (subconsultant to The Berger Partnership)

The Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation envisioned transforming a former U.S. Navy airfield into an urban park with natural habitat, wetlands and five athletic fields. The Berger Partnership selected Otak to design all habitat components in the Warren G. Magnuson Park Master Plan. Services included environmental analysis, wetland delineation and impact assessment, preparation of Draft Environmental Impact Statement documents and restoration design for all habitats across 65 acres of open space. Otak led the effort to obtain all regulatory permits, and continues to provide habitat monitoring for amphibians and other wildlife in this award-winning park.
