Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a series of public meetings for the Roxhill Park Playground renovation and skatespot development project. The meeting on Wednesday, October 12, will focus on the schematic design for the skatespot; the meeting on Monday, October 17, will focus on the play area schematic design, and at the final meeting on Monday, November 14, Parks will present the final design for both the skatespot and play area. All meetings will begin at 6 p.m. at the Southwest Branch Library located at 9010 35th Ave SW.
At the first meeting on Wednesday, October 12, Parks’ design team will present the skatespot schematic design and invite the community to comment. Roxhill Park is located at 2850 SW Roxbury St., in southwest Seattle.
A skatespot is smaller than a full skatepark, but large enough to incorporate multiple skateboarding features. The skatespot is expected to be 8,000 square feet. For more information on Seattle skatepark planning please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/projects/skatepark.htm.
Funding for this renovation comes from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy that Seattle voters passed 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.
