Friends is proud to partner with the Yesler Community Collaborative, the backbone organization bringing together the neighborhoods surrounding the community to support its redevelopment. This partnership will ensure the waterfront project contributes to Yesler Terrace’s continued ability to thrive. Located just down the hill from Yesler Terrace, the new waterfront park will be a public amenity widely used by Yesler’s residents as a place to experience diverse cultural happenings, open green spaces, and the natural beauty of our central shoreline. The opening of the First Hill streetcar will strengthen the existing bike, transit, and pedestrian connections between Yesler Terrace and the waterfront.
