MagnoliaSafety.com was first built as a way to promote stronger traffic calming measures at 32nd Ave W and W Raye St., but it’s clear that there are other things that we need around here to keep us safe.

Block Watch is a program based on the principle that neighbors working together are the first and best line of defense against crime. Block Watch has been shown to be an effective deterrent of crime at the neighborhood level.
The Seattle Police Block Watch Program began in 1972 and has seen significant involvement and success. Seattle has always been recognized for its Block Watch program. Roughly 30% of Seattle neighborhoods are currently involved in Block Watch, compared to a national average of fewer than 11%.

Friends of Magnolia Manor Park was formed in 2011 to help implement the community-developed plan for Magnolia Manor Park, including an Off Leach Area (OLA) and P-Patch. Through their stewardship, Friends of Magnolia Manor Park build community by connecting peopl, palnts and animals in recreational activities thereby creating a treasured and sustainable neighborhood gathering place for all.
Our purposes are to defend the integrity of Discovery Park; to create and protect there an open space of quiet and tranquility, a sanctuary where the works of man are minimized, appearing to be affected primarily by the forces of nature, a place which emphasizes its natural environment, broad vistas and unspoiled shorelines; and to promote the development of the Park according to a Master Plan responsive to these goals.

Encourage a more complete and knowledgeable sense of place through the works and projects of the Magnolia Historical Society.
