Oxbow Park p-patch update: improvements to shed and beds

Updated: May 10

Updates are underway at the P-Patch in Oxbow Park. Passersby may have noticed gradual repairs taking place to the shed over the last few weeks: the plants and soil on the shed's green roof have been removed (pictured above in the foreground), and a new roof liner is being installed.

Walking past on May 3rd, I spoke with Nate from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, who had stopped by to survey progress. The shed repair work, which is being performed by Seattle Parks and Recreation, includes the roof, as well as replacing rotted wood and repainting the structure. When asked about timeline, Nate was not certain when the project would be completed. He did inform me that in addition to the repairs, the sign on the shed would also be updated to read "Oxbow P-Patch" instead of the current "Georgetown P-Patch."

The updates are part of a larger Rejuvenate Our P-Patches project, addressing needed updates to p-patches throughout the city, including making them more accessible. The Oxbow P-Patch is apparently slated to receive accessible garden beds, however I was unable to reach Seattle Parks for comment or further detail.
