Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a community meeting to discuss the Jefferson Park Expansion on Tuesday, December 1, 2009 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Jefferson Park Community Center, 3801 Beacon Ave. S. Parks staff will provide an update on the construction of the new park on the reservoir lid and gather input on the design for future developments in the park.
Currently, Phase One construction is underway. At this meeting the public will be asked to provide input on these developments:
- Beacon Mountain – an educational/experiential play area
- Park service road and promenade
- Jefferson playfield improvements
- Jefferson skatepark and basketball court
A Master Plan for the site was developed in 2002 as a guide for the development of Jefferson Park. The community participated in prioritizing elements for the park development at a meeting in the spring of 2009. The Pro Parks Levy and the new Parks and Green Spaces Levy together provide $15.4 million to implement the community vision for this park.
