Want to walk on water? Seattle Parks offers the next best thing with new signage that explains it
Signs like this one have been placed at the following covered-reservoir park locations:
- Beacon Reservoir (Jefferson Park)
- Magnolia Reservoir (Magnolia Manor)
- Maple Leaf Reservoir
- West Seattle Reservoir (Westcrest)
- Myrtle Reservoir
An additional sign will be installed at Lincoln Reservoir (Cal Anderson Park) at a later date.
The project aims to inform the public of the reservoir and how they can help to keep the drinking water safe. The location of each sign was coordinated between Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) Drinking Water Line of Business and the Seattle Parks and Recreation landscape architects to ensure they are installed with the surrounding context and views in mind, and with support from City staff to ensure that the locations meet ADA compliance. Each location was evaluated and approved by SPU to ensure no conflict with the underground assets. All signs are installed with a surface mount, and the concrete slab sits on the surface.
