White Center Park To Be Re-Named Steve Cox Memorial Park
This Saturday, April 5th, White Center Park will be re-dedicated as Steve Cox Memorial Park, in memory of the late Deputy Steve Cox, a true community leader who inspired many with his dedication and hard work in the community.
Naming this park in his honor is a fitting tribute for the officer who was shot and killed while investigating an assault outside a White Center home back in December 2006.
His murder stunned the community, who revered Cox as a Superman, a larger-than-life prosecutor-turned deputy.
The park will include:
- Area: 12 acres
- Hours: Dawn to dusk
- Amenities: White Center Community Center, Mel Olson Stadium, children’s play area with play structures, tennis courts, picnic tables and barbecues, picnic shelter, baseball fields, racquetball courts, restrooms.
- Rentals: For information on renting facilities, please call 206-205-5275.
