Updated: March 23, 2021

Spring 2021

Seattle Parks and Recreation would like to thank everyone who participated in the Online Open House on February 27. If you missed the Open House you may view it here. The video will help the viewer to learn about the project, meet the design team, and review the preferred schematic design and the three play equipment options for this Central District park. You may view the presentation only from the open house below.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Spruce St Mini Park Public Art Virtual Presentation on January 16, 2021. Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) in partnership with the Office of Arts & Culture (OAC) are collaborating with the community on public art to be included in this play area renovation project. OAC hired artists Hasaan Kirkland and Damon Brown to work with the community to decide what type of artwork would best reflect the neighborhood. They lead the January 16th virtual presentation, discussing possibilities for the inclusion of a public art project in the renovation of the Spruce Street Mini Park Play Area. Hasaan and Damon presented community feedback received through SPR's online survey and recommendations for artwork locations and themes.

The goal of this project is to renovate the existing play area space, including reconfiguration of the layout, new play equipment, ADA improvements, benches, seating options, and possible electrical upgrades.

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback through the online surveys. Also, thank you to everyone who attended the socially distant event we held in October. If you have additional feedback on the three design concepts please contact the project manager.
