Baker Park Addition

Updated: August 17, 2017

Summer 2017

Seattle Parks and Recreation thanks everyone who attended both meetings for the development of the Baker Park Addition. Input from the approximately 35 adults and 10 children/teens at the August 12 meeting favored safety enhancements and a friendlier pedestrian and dog walker environment. The designers are using input from the meetings and the online survey in considering how to activate the park. The design will also consider the Crown Hill Urban Village up-zoning change coming up in 2018.

At the kick-off meeting on May 20, 2017 at the park. Many neighborhood people including teens and children attended.  Most participants and respondents from on-line survey favor improvement for visibility, lighting, expanding existing play area. Thank you to all who provided input for the development of this park.
