Thank you Seattle this park is complete!

Georgetown celebrated the opening of this new turf field on Friday, June 13, 2008 with a community kickball game - Hats vs. Boots. Mayor Greg Nickels participated by throwing in the first pitch and playing the first inning. At the opening event the Seattle Sounders conducted a soccer clinic and the community enjoyed music by Los Flacos.
Parks modified the original plans for the improvement project to include accommodation of high school baseball practice. This change includes barrier fence netting around portions of the field to protect cars and spectators from errant foul balls.

In response to a request from the community and with the support of the Superintendent, this project also completed the safety fencing at the north end of the site.

COMMUNITY PARTICIPATION

April 12, 2006 Parks met with the Georgetown Community Council Parks Committee to discuss the community request to allow Cleveland High School to play baseball of the field. Parks agreed to the request on the condition that barrier safety netting be installed around portions of the ballfield field.

July 24, 2006 - Final Public Meeting
The Parks design team briefed the Georgetown Community Council, and informed interested community members of the the final program elements to be included in the project given the available budget.
