The 16 acres of parkland provides a neighborhood park for Northeast Seattle. The design theme "Wind, Waves and Wings" was inspired by a community vision.  
The park includes the following:

  • a system of pathways weaving through plantings and trees, including two staircases connecting the upper and lower levels of the park. Note: The outer asphalt pathway is 2540' so 2 laps is just 200' under 1 mile
  • a viewpoint highlighting the Mount Rainier and Lake Washington
  • a series of rain gardens
  • a shelter and gathering plaza
  • a sports court area, including pickle ball court, a hitting wall, and basketball hoops
  • two ball fields
  • a play area boasting a zip line, children's garden, and other unique play features.

Maple Leaf Park features Patrick Marold's site-specific public artwork, Confluent Boulders. Inspired by the two sources of water that feed the Maple Leaf Reservoir, the sculpture comprises of two igneous boulders taken from the Tolt River and Cedar River Watersheds.  With the Cascade Range as a back drop, Confluent Boulders enhances our awareness of the region's natural resources and its connection to the environment.

Current Project

Maple Leaf Reservoir Park Greenway Improvements

April 22, 2024

With funding from the Seattle Park District, Seattle Parks and Recreation is collaborating with the Seattle Department of Transportation to connect, enhance and activate links from Neighborhood Greenways to parks by improving access and amenities for pedestrians and bicycles.  

The Maple Leaf Reservoir Park Greenway Improvements project aims to upgrade connections between Maple Leaf Park and nearby walking and biking amenities in the Maple Leaf, Northgate, Wedgewood, and Roosevelt neighborhoods. 

The project construction is ongoing, anticipated to be complete by the end of May. You may see crews out completing small items as they wrap up the project over the next month. Thank you for your patience as we completed these improvements. 

 Maple Leaf Site Plan

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) invited the Maple Leaf community to an Open House at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park on June 19, 2019. Approximately 50 people attended, and staff learned what the community values in terms of the north park entrance and what enhancements could be made to improve the connection between the future Neighborhood Greenway (along 12th Ave NE that will connect to Northgate) and the park. Here are the notes from that meeting.

This project is in coordination with SDOT’s Northgate NGW Connections program, and you can find more information on roadway improvements here:
