Seattle Parks and Recreation and Crown Hill Center host a celebration for the new Crown Hill Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation and Crown Hill Center invite the community to a celebration for new recreation and open space in Crown Hill. The event takes place at Crown Hill Park, 9089 Holman Rd NW on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.   The event will feature family fun activities, a skateboard clinic by Skate-Like-a-Girl, hotdogs and light refreshments. 

The 2000 Pro Parks Levy and the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy provided funding for the acquisition and development of this new gathering space in northwest Seattle. The park features an open lawn area, picnic area, a skateboard mini-ramp, artistic play features, good pathway circulation, new landscaping and a renovated ballfield.

Construction fencing will remain up around the turf at the ballfield to provide more time for the grass to establish. Parks anticipates construction fencing around the ballfield to be removed in mid-June.

For additional information about the project, please visit the website at http://www.seattle.gov/parks/projects/crown_hill/ or contact Project Manager Kim Baldwin, Seattle Parks and Recreation, kim.baldwin@seattle.gov
