The plan details potential trail and wayfinding improvements for pedestrians along SW Brandon and Findlay Streets near Camp Long and Longfellow Creek. It is posted below with appendices, take a look, we encourage you to see what we have done with your ideas!

Camp Long SW Brandon Street Entrance Improvement Project

One of the elements and first phase in moving this plan forward is happening with grants and private donations to develop the Camp Long Brandon Street Entrance. The original plan provided only concept drawings for improvement to this entrance.

SPR hired a consultant to produce construction documents. The goal for this project is to bring the design concept to fruition and improve the entrance to Camp Long at SW Brandon Street. This is in keeping with Sheila Brown's - a long-time employee of Seattle Parks and Recreation and Director of Camp Long - desire to provide a more attractive, inviting, and equitable opportunity to all visitors to this park. This project is made possible by the successful community fundraising effort to make Sheila's wish come true.
