Seattle Park District provides funding for development of Baker Park at Crown Hill expansion

Community encouraged to participate in design

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to an Open House on Saturday, May 20, 2017 to provide input on the design of Baker Park at Crown Hill and the addition of the park. Join SPR’s staff from 1 to 3 p.m. at the park, 8347 14th Ave. NW, to learn about the park expansion project and provide design input. Neighbors of all ages are encouraged to attend and let us know what amenities and park elements are preferred for the addition. Light refreshments and children’s activities will be provided.

SPR purchased the .23-acre site directly adjacent and south of Baker Park at Crown Hill, 8341 14th Ave. NW, in 2013 to increase the open space for the Crown Hill urban village. The design of the addition will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act standards and provide access to open space within this high-density neighborhood. SPR will work with the community on the design and encourages community participation. Please participate in a short survey to inform the design: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XQNHRRM

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
