Seattle Parks and Recreation will host the second meeting for the new Georgetown Spray Park on February 9, 2010 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Building C of the Georgetown Campus of South Seattle Community College located at 6737 Corson Ave S. The public is encouraged to come and provide input on spray park features and design. After this meeting the design team will create a preferred design for the park, making community input essential at this meeting.
Identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy this renovation project is allocated $400,000 and provides for the conversion of the existing wading pool into a spray park. 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 projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities. Recognizing the importance of creating vibrant and engaging green spaces for Seattle as it grows, Seattle Parks and Recreation moved quickly into action and has added 2.53 acres to the park system and completed eight new development projects, with six projects in construction, and another 24 projects in the planning and design phase.
