Seattle Parks and Recreation will host a community meeting to discuss the renovation for Ross Playground on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at Ross Shelter House. Ross Shelter House is located at 4320 4th Ave NW.
Parks has hired Worthy and Associates as the designer for this project. They will introduce the project and gather ideas from the community on building an improved play area at the park. This renovation project, identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy, will provide new play equipment, site improvements and access improvements.
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.
The community is encouraged to come and participate in designing this new play area.
