Parks host meeting for Woodland Park play area renovation
Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting two community meetings to discuss the renovation of the Woodland Park play area. The first meeting is Wednesday, July 18, 2012 from 7 – 9 p.m. at Phinney Neighborhood Association in room 1. Phinney Neighborhood Association is located at 6532 Phinney Ave N. The community is encouraged to attend.
This renovation project, identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy, will provide new play equipment, site improvements and access improvements to facilitate use by all users. At this first meeting the community can learn about the schedule and budget for the project, and provide input on play equipment. The existing play area will be open during the summer 2013, but will be closed during construction in late autumn 2013.
At the second meeting in October, Parks will present play area design options and gather further input on the potential plans.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
Woodland Park play area is located at 1000 N 59 St. in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood.
