Final Meeting for Park Improvements at University Heights

Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a public design meeting for the south lot of University Heights Center for the Community on Monday, July 11, 2011 from 7 – 9 p.m.  The meeting will be held at University Heights Center for the Community, Room 104, located at 5031 University Way NE, Seattle WA 98105. 

This project is one of 15 community-initiated projects to receive Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity funding. The design team of HBB Landscape Architects and Seattle Parks will present background about the process to date, including input collected from the first public meeting, and present a final design concept. Staff will also continue to gather input from the community about the design of this new neighborhood park. 

The goal of the project is to provide an urban community open space accessible for all that is integrated into the overall design of the historic site. The site design accommodates a variety of parks features and recreational uses, while seamlessly integrating the University Heights Center for the Community, University Farmers Market and P-Patch. 

Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. Seven million of the $15 million Opportunity Fund was allocated in Round 1 funding to 15 different community initiated projects throughout the city.  For more information on the Opportunity Fund visit,
