Channel The Rain: Green Streets

Seattle is well-known for its lush landscape, and we welcome the rain, using it to transform public spaces into green oases. Tour the nation’s first green streets, with sustainable elements that store, drain, and clean stormwater runoff. With Seattle Department of Transportation and Public Utilities staff, see the celebrated Bell Street park, the Swale on Yale—a vertical green wall built through public private partnerships, and Growing Vine Street—a block-long community-led functional sculpture that astounds in its beauty, utility, and expanse.
