Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to participate in 2020 Cal Anderson Park — Please take short survey and join us online!

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to participate in a short survey http://bit.ly/CalAnderson2 and join the third online discussions for 2020 Cal Anderson Park. This project engages the public on how changing assumptions and language can affect the design of park spaces and create a sense of belonging for everyone. Please participate on-line in a conversation and vision for the future of Cal Anderson Park on Wednesday, October 7 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at https://dlrgroup.zoom.us/j/96794281610 or Thursday, October 8 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. at https://dlrgroup.zoom.us/j/93691483865. 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 for interventions to Cal Anderson Park. On October 7 and 8 we will discuss survey results, integration of public input, strategies for early and long-term implementation to enhance the sense of belonging in the park, as well as new ideas and next steps in this process for Cal Anderson Park.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first two online conversations. Recordings of the meetings and additional information are available for review here https://2020calandersonpark.com/.

The survey is translated into six languages and closed captioning will be provided for the online meetings. For additional questions about project or meeting assistance/accommodations please contact 2020CalAnderson@seattle.gov.
