Capitol Hill Community Post | Community invited to learn more about Volunteer Park amphitheater replacement

From Seattle Parks
Seattle Parks and Recreation and Volunteer Park Trust invite the community to learn more about the Volunteer Park Amphitheater Replacement project on Thursday, January 31, 2019 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Miller Community Center, 330 19th Ave. E. The Seattle Park District Major Projects Challenge Fund provides $900,000 in funding to move the community-initiated Volunteer Park Amphitheater Replacement project forward through the final design phase and construction.

Volunteer Park Amphitheater Community Meeting

Please join Volunteer Park neighbors and friends at the upcoming meeting. We will re-introduce the design team, provide a design update and review next steps for the amphitheater. In August 2018, Volunteer Park Trust presented the amphitheater design studies to the community and received valuable feedback. The amphitheater design is based on extensive outreach with the community, as well as input from the Friends of Seattle Olmsted Parks and the Landmarks Preservation Board.

Volunteer Park Trust will match the Seattle Park District Major Projects Challenge Fund award.  They are currently fundraising. To learn more about the project or to donate, visit

  1. This is great. Wish Seattle had something like Millennium Park in Chicago with its free concert series (which was probably the best conversion of a parking lot into a park.)

    Only issue I’ve had at the Vol Park site is related to the flight path. You are in the highest point in Seattle, and at times the planes make it impossible to hear a performance at the amphitheater.
