There is a public art sculpture in front of the log cabin honoring Steve Cox.
Formerly White Center Park, this park was renamed Steve Cox Memorial Park in 2007 in honor of a fallen King County Sheriff’s Deputy who was also a beloved community leader. The park offers Mel Olson Stadium, baseball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, play and picnic areas, and a foot reflexology walking path. This park is also home to the White Center Community Center, an historical building constructed as a Works Progress Administration project in 1940.
Also known as the “Log Cabin”, the community center houses King County Parks’ White Center Teen Program, which provides after-school recreational programming to neighborhood youth aged 12 to 19.
In 2008, major renovations upgraded the baseball stadium with a synthetic turf infield and other improvements as part of King County Park’s CPG program.
In 2012, the tennis courts were just updated as well. Playground equipment also was recently upgraded and this area is filled with lots of families playing.
