Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007
expanded Seattle Aquarium opened in June after a $41 million renovation.
The City of Seattle provided $24 million to rebuild the structure of
the facility, and the Seattle Aquarium Society raised $17 million to
fund new exhibits, an entry on Alaskan Way, a café/catering facility,
an expanded gift shop, and the Puget Sound Hall.
The expansion was completed on schedule and under budget and has resulted
in a 25 percent increase in attendance. Perhaps most important, it provides
a meeting venue to focus efforts to deal with environmental issues ranging
from saving Puget Sound to dealing with global climate change.
