Join Seattle Parks and Recreation in a community conversation and vision for Cal Anderson Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to participate in the second of three online discussions for 2020 Cal Anderson Park, a project to engage the public on how changing assumptions and language can affect the design of park spaces and create a sense of belonging for everyone. Please join us on-line for a discussion about the future of Cal Anderson Park on Wednesday, September 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at https://dlrgroup.zoom.us/j/96261663627 or Thursday, September 10, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at https://dlrgroup.zoom.us/j/95413853729. Choose either day to participate.

What is important to our community must be reflected in our parks. Our goal is to engage community around how we can use Seattle’s parks spaces to support better outcomes for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and LGBTQIA+ communities in our city and our region.

Together with the community and Seattle Parks and Recreation, Rico Quirindongo will lead the consultant team of DLR Group and HBB, Inc. to discuss, inventory, and prioritize ideas forinterventions to Cal Anderson Park. On September 9th and 10th, we will discuss survey results, site analysis, programming opportunities, as well as new ideas and community feedback. Through this continued public process, we will identify short term action items and long-term strategies to enhance the sense of belonging in the park. Additional opportunities to support the 2020 Cal Anderson Park conversation will include surveys, interviews, and additional public meetings in October.
