Three Public Meetings On Possible Improvements To Victor Steinbrueck Park
Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold three public meetings to invite public comment and input on possible physical improvements to Victor Steinbrueck Park, 2001 Western Ave.
Meeting dates are Thursday, May 1, Thursday, May 22, and Thursday, June 12, and each will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Desimone Bridge (in the Pike Place Market north of Stewart St.).
Parks will work with the community and interested citizens to develop a program of improvements that address objectives for the neighborhood and the city.
Steinbrueck Park is among the downtown parks studied by Mayor Nickels' Center City Task Force, which recommended a strategy for enlivening these parks and making them feel safe and welcoming. That strategy includes increased security through the addition of park rangers who are being hired now; increased programming and activities to bring people in and bring people back; and physical improvements to the parks that will make them feel open and safe.
