Seattle Parks and Recreation invites input on three design options for the expansion of Greenwood Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to an Open House on Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Greenwood Park addition, 8805 Fremont Ave. N. The community is encouraged to attend the Open House in the park and provide input on the three design options for the addition to Greenwood Park. This is an opportunity for you to meet the design team, provide feedback on the future design, enjoy free activities and food, and get to know your neighbors.

SPR purchased this .1-acre site at 8805 Fremont Ave. N in 2013 to provide more open space for the growing neighborhood and expand the existing Greenwood Park. The property is surrounded by Greenwood Park. The acquisition of the property was identified in the Greenwood neighborhood plan and the 2009 Greenwood Park Master Plan.

The design of the new parcel builds upon several years of work and design from the community process led by Vision Greenwood. It will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and reflect the community input received.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog for Seattle Parks and Recreation as well as other facilities including the Aquarium and Zoo. In addition, it provides funding to improve and rehabilitate community centers, preserve the urban forest, perform day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities, provide more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, provide programs for people of all ages and abilities, and acquire and develop new park land.
