Project Title:
Washington Park Arboretum Environmental Education Center
Pre-Design Study

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is inviting all interested Architectural Firms to submit qualifications for the Washington Park Arboretum Environmental Education Center Pre-Design Study.

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR), in equal partnership with the University of Washington Botanic Gardens (UW), and the Arboretum Foundation (AF) are engaging in a pre-design study for the building of a new Environmental Education Center at Washington Park Arboretum. This new facility will allow the current youth and adult education programming to expand by nearly double those currently served annually. The desired goal is to serve 20,000 children and adults annually from diverse communities across the region.

The City expects to hire a consultant team through this solicitation that will be able to deliver a successful pre-design analysis and related documents. The purpose of the pre-design phase is to undertake an in-depth study to define the final project’s scope.
