Seattle Parks and Recreation will host a public meeting for the Sandel Play Area renovation project on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 at the Greenwood branch library, 8016 Greenwood Ave N, from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. The public is encouraged to attend and learn about the changes that are coming to this park.
Sandel Park is located in the Greenwood neighborhood at 9053 1st Ave NW. The renovation project, identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy will provide new play equipment for children ages 2 -12, site improvements to enhance safety and access improvements to facilitate use by all users.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The new $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 by November 2009 — just one year after the passage of the Levy — will have added 2.53 acres to the park system and completed eight new development projects, will have four projects in construction, and another 21 projects in the planning and design phase.
