Community invited to review potential plans for Woodland Park play area renovation
Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a second community meeting for the renovation of the Woodland Park play area on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 from 7 – 9 p.m. at Phinney Neighborhood Association in Room 1. The community is encouraged to attend and provide feedback on the schematic designs. Phinney Neighborhood Association is located at 6532 Phinney Ave. N.
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 meeting, Parks will present play area design options developed with input from the first meeting held in July and gather further input on the potential plans. The existing play area will be open during the summer 2013, but will be closed during construction in late autumn 2013.
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 59th St. in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood.
