Seward Park Salmon Habitat Improvements

J.A. Brennan worked with Seattle Parks to replace a failing concrete block revetment along the southern shore of the park with a series of pocket beaches spanning approximately 500 feet of shoreline. The design forms an undulating shoreline in an alternating arrangement of gravel beaches and drift sills. Bioengineering methods employed include the placement of coir logs with live stake plantings, woody debris, and brush layering.
