Adjacent to the Henderson Street Light Rail Station, Osborn Consulting, Inc. (OCI) team members developed a conceptual plan for a new gateway park that will strengthen the sense of arrival from the station into the Rainier Beach neighborhood. The proposed design re-purposes a previously under-utilized parcel with two electrical towers into an active community park. It also completes the missing segment of the Chief Sealth Bicycle trail, provides bus queuing and layover space for eight different bus routes, and adheres to restrictive guidelines set forth by City Light.
