On March 24, Seattle’s International District community and Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) celebrated the completion of the Hing Hay Park extension. The extension project doubled the size of the original Hing Hay Park. The new half of the park opened in June 2017, and the iconic red gateway was installed in February 2018. The abstract perforations in the gateway represent leaf patterns, an inclusive pattern representing all pan-Asian cultures in the Seattle Chinatown-International District. The new park design includes a cultural performance space, with custom integrated seating that punctuates the terraces and provides micro-stages, activity areas for all community members to enjoy, including ping pong tables, seating, exercise machines, a badminton area, and shade trees.
