Connecting and Revitalizing Parks on the Elliott Bay Waterfront
Elliott Bay Connections (EBC) is a new public–private partnership to connect, restore and revitalize public parks along the Elliott Bay waterfront from Pier 62 (the northern end of Waterfront Park) to the beach just south of Smith Cove. The project, expected to be complete by June 2026, is funded entirely by private philanthropic donations.
Elliott Bay Connections would:
- Create a new pedestrian and bicycle greenway connecting the new Waterfront Park at Pier 62 to the Olympic Sculpture Park at Pier 70.
- Restore and revitalize visitor amenities at Myrtle Edwards Park and Centennial Park, including restrooms, picnic tables and seating.
- Refresh landscapes at Myrtle Edwards and Centennial parks with new lawns, plantings and tree canopy.
- Add new play areas for children and families.
- Restore public fishing at Pier 86 and improve direct public access to the water.
The Seattle Waterfront is situated on the land of the Coast Salish Peoples, who have resided here since time immemorial and continue to thrive.
With respect and humility, we acknowledge the history of the waterfront, the dispossession of land from the Coast Salish people, and, most importantly, the strength and resilience of the Native people and their culture through this history to the present.
This acknowledgment serves only as a first step in honoring the land that we occupy and the first peoples of this land. The EBC Team recognizes that this will be long and evolving work to build and repair relationships with Native communities.

EBC Community Survey
From November 1 through December 15, 2023, our survey asked the community about how often they visit the parks, what issues keep them from visiting more often, and their thoughts on specific park attributes.
