Seattle Parks & Recreation has announced the official name for our new park, adjacent to The Fremont Troll sculpture.

Seattle Parks Superintendent Jesus Aguirre approved the name, based on recommendations from the Parks Naming Committee and public submissions.  The Committee officially chose Troll’s Knoll Park for our park due to the common usage of this name by our community and because of the park’s proximity to our sculpture.

Troll’s Knoll Park utilizes public land incorporating sustainable methods, such as the use of recycled materials, native plants, minimal earth movement, tree retention, storm water management, solar panels, and wind turbines.  Troll’s Knoll also provides a more comfortable, more accessible pedestrian link through our neighborhood, and provides much requested P-Patch space, to be administered through the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.
