Seattle Parks and Recreation Annual Report - 2007
Center City Parks
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.
