The acronym in the name of this pocket park stands for Saving Urban Nature. The park has a low-maintenance design with a path, bench and native plantings, and is a green and peaceful meeting place for visitors of all ages.

The creation of SUN park came about in 2006, when a group of neighbors raised money for Cascade Land Conservancy (now Foreterra) to save the property from development. In ensuing years, the community raised additinal funds to develop the park, and in 2019 asked Forterra to transfer the property to the City's Parks and Recreation department. The Friends of SUN Park continue to help steward the park.
