Victor Steinbrueck Park, Seattle, WA 1982

Originally named ‘Market Park,’ this important 0.9 acre civic open space and viewpoint park overlooks Puget Sound near the Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle. The park was conceived and designed as an addition to the Market by Victor Steinbrueck, who helped save the original farmer’s market, along with Richard Haag.

Peggy Gaynor worked closely with mentors Victor Steinbrueck and Rich Haag as project landscape designer and ‘clerk of the works’ while employed at Richard Haag Associates. Images are taken during construction and at the Grand Opening that celebrates the $350,000 project’s completion in 1982.
