Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007


Center City Parks

Dancing Til Dusk at Freeway Park last summer was a popular and well attended program.Beginning this past summer and running through the end of the year, Parks offered a number of exciting programs and fun activities in downtown Seattle to revitalize and bring new life to our outdoor spaces. Events ranged from movies and music to classes and competitions, each of which helped to highlight and celebrate our diverse downtown neighborhoods.

Our Center City Busker Program brought independent street performers to Hing Hay, Occidental, Freeway, Westlake, and Waterfront parks during lunchtimes throughout the summer. Most of the performers were musicians, but others included balloon art makers and portrait artists.

Dancing 'Til Dusk featured five Thursday evenings of free dance instruction and dance time at Freeway park with live music and an outdoor dance floor. Each night featured a different dance style ranging from Waltz to Zydeco and Salsa to Swing.

The program was so successful that Parks, working with our many partners from 2007, will expand and enhance the program in 2008. Check out Parks' website in the spring for a complete listing of our summer 2008 program.
