Garfield Super Block is a park for the people, by the people.

Located at the heart of the Central Area (and bordered by 23rd and 25th Avenues and Cherry Street), the Garfield Superblock is the community’s central gathering place as well as a historical city-wide destination.

Known to some as “Little City Hall”, the space pulsates with a rich history of events, people, and moments, which continues today.

The block is comprised of the Garfield Community Center, Medgar Evers Pool, the Tennis Courts and adjoining Garfield Park, including the historic Garfield Ball Fields; the Teen Life Center, the Quincy Jones Performing Arts Center; and Garfield High School Track and Field.

The Garfield Super Block Coalition shares a project overview video update

The goal of the Garfield Superblock - Park and Promenade Renovation Project is to confirm and implement the unfinished renovation work of the 2005 Garfield Superblock Master Plan. This was a planning effort funded by the adjacent Garfield School renovation (completed in 2008).

The Project design addresses recommendations from the Master Plan that were never implemented:

  • Grounds Improvements: Site improvements throughout the park to help support the overall park and amenities use and activities.

  • A “Legacy and Promise Promenade”: Creation of a pathway that integrates art and amenities that reflect the immense cultural diversity and rich history of the Central Area.

Thanks to the Garfield Super Block for its partnershipas we honor 100 years of Garfield High School!

From humble beginnings in 1911, MOHAI has grown into the largest private heritage organization in the State of Washington with a collection of over four million objects, documents, and photographs from the Puget Sound region's past (including these amazing images from the MOHAI/Seattle Post-Intelligencer collection). A portion of this collection (roughly 2% at any given time) is on display in the museum's galleries at the historic Naval Reserve Armory in Lake Union Park.

MOHAI uses these artifacts, along with cutting edge, hands-on interactive experiences to make history come alive through the unforgettable stories of the men and women who built Seattle from wilderness to world city.

In addition to museum exhibits, MOHAI hosts a variety of award-winning youth and public programs and consistently collaborates with community partners, like the Garfield High School Centennial Celebration Committee, on local activities and events.

Drop by the MOHAI table at the Garfield Centennial Celebration on Aug. 27 to try out Exploration Backpacks and discover more about the museum!

Thanks to MOHAI's Nicole Robert and Wendy Malloy for coordinating our Community Partnership and sharing the amazing above photos.

Thanks to MOHAI for its partnership as we honor 100 years of Garfield High School!
