Jefferson Park, the sixth largest park in the city, offers unparalleled views of the Duwamish River, the city and the Olympic Mountains. The Olmsted inspired path system flanked by trees offers a wonderful respite from city life along with many active opportunities. The covering of the reservoirs and two voter-approved Park levies transformed the park into a great community gathering place for southeast Seattle. It is the home to the Jefferson Park Golf Course, the Jefferson Community Center, Jefferson Lawn Bowling, Jefferson Skatepark and Beacon Mountain.

Current Project at Jefferson Park Golf Course

Visit the Jefferson Park Golf Course Holes #10-13 Renovation project page for more information about the renovation. Renovation to Jefferson Golf Course Holes #10-13 will reduce golf balls travelling out of the park and into the adjacent streets and homes. The renovation changes the traffic pattern for holes #11-13 from a counter-clockwise pattern to a clockwise pattern which will have a higher percentage of balls remaining on the course and in play.
