It started with a passion...

Neighbors and friends came together with the idea to reclaim one or two sites in Ballard for green space. Founder, Lillian Riley, inspired the neighborhood to think bigger, to aim for a network of public green spaces throughout NW Seattle where no child or adult would need to cross an arterial to find a green space.  20+ years later we are still seeking new opportunities in N.W. Seattle to enrich the lives of our community.
