Protect Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club - Save Seattle's History

Seattle’s history is rapidly vanishing. We, concerned citizens and community members, petition the City of Seattle to protect the land of Jefferson Park including Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club and its rich 75-year contribution to Seattle and the Beacon Hill community.
Seattle Parks & Recreation plans to expand its golf facilities in Jefferson Park. The Jefferson Park Golf Course holds at least 75% of Jefferson Park land. There is ample room for development within Golf’s 130+ acres without encroaching into what remains of Jefferson Park.
Jefferson Park offers a diverse range of recreational activities, including the sport of lawn bowls. The golf program expansion would uproot and thereby destroy the unique sports option of lawn bowls that serves a devoted, diverse, and multi-generational community – including many senior citizens. This expansion plan puts Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club’s future at risk. The Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club has no other options. If it is uprooted it will disappear.
The RFP has just been published. Click here for more details
We, the undersigned, oppose this blatant land grab. We demand Seattle Parks & Recreation leave the history and heritage of Jefferson Park Lawn Bowling Club alone. Save this unique Seattle gem!
