Green Lake Park’s two beaches will be getting some work done. Starting tomorrow a project will begin that will replace selected wood pilings used to secure swim area ropes and floats with steel helical pipe piles. Seattle Parks Department says the piling replacement will improve safety at these public beaches.

The Seattle Park District provided $500,000 to improve swim beach improvement projects which includes both the west and east swim beaches at Green Lake Park and the beaches along Lake Washington: Seward Park, Mount Baker Park, Madrona Park, Madison Park, Matthews Beach Park and Magnuson Park.

According to Seattle Parks, the projects at Green Lake Park will require temporary closure of the trail near the Small Craft Center. On the morning of Tues. Nov. 22, there will be intermittent closure of the trail to launch the barge and crane. They anticipate closing the trail again on the morning of Tues. Dec 6 to remove the barge and crane.
