Overview & History

Sunset Elementary School closed in 2007 and the community, led by the Friends of Sunset Park, worked for several years to make their vision of a park on the site a reality. A Master Plan was adopted by City Council in June 2010. The School Board approved a resolution declaring that the Sunset site is not currently required for school purposes and authorizing the temporary surplus of the property and demolition of the buildings.

In January 2013 the City Council adopted the Sunset School site as an addendum to the Shoreline School District/City of Shoreline Joint Use Agreement to allow the City to maintain the site as a public park; while still being owned by the Shoreline School District.  The site opened in August 2014 for use.

Much of the current playground equipment (pictured above) was inherited from the School District and dates back to when Sunset Elementary School was in operation. 

Sunset School Park is located at 17800 10th Ave NW in Shoreline.
