D'oh!!! It's Homer's Park!!!
D'oh!!! Elvis Has Left the Hat n' Boots!!!
In the 1990s, the Central Area neighborhood plan identified the need for a park in the Madison and 23rd Avenue area. The 2000 Pro Parks Levy included funds to acquire and develop a small park in the neighborhood.
Through the Seattle Parks Foundation an anonymous donor gave $1.3 million to this new park in 2002, doubling the size of the park, increasing park development funding, and creating a small maintenance endowment. This donation represents one of the largest donations in the history of Seattle Parks and Recreation.
