Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 from 7:15 – 8:30 p.m. at the Highland Park Improvement Club, 1116 SW Holden St, Seattle. The public is encouraged to come learn about the project, to meet the design team, and to provide input on spraypark features. The design team will present an overview of spraypark features and wants to hear from the community about which ones would be best to integrate into the site.
Identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy, this project is allocated $635,000 for design and construction. Additional funding allocated to the project will allow for full water re-circulating systems which will provide better play experience and water conservation. Key considerations in designing the project are safety, water/energy conservation, and selection of spray features that the community finds engaging.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for three wading pool conversion projects throughout the city.
