Seattle Parks and Recreation needs your input on the final design for Spruce Street Mini Park Play Area

Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) is renovating Spruce St Mini Park Play Area, a neighborhood park in the central area (21st Ave. and E Fir St.) and invites the community to participate in the final design and play area equipment selection. Please take this survey https://seattle.surveymonkey.com/r/sprucestpa and join us for the Online Open House.  The Online Open House is Saturday, February 27 at 10 a.m. and held on Webex at http://bit.ly/SpruceStreetPlay. The Online Open House provides the community an opportunity to learn about the project, meet the design team and provide input on the preferred schematic design and the three play equipment options.

We wanted to thank you in advance for contributing your thoughts on what is most important to you as we move forward with this project. The design team incorporated previous community input into the play area schematic design and we are excited to share it with you along with the play equipment options.

As part of the play area renovation project, SPR is partnering with the Office of Arts & Culture and will collaborate with the community on public art. Seattle Parks and Recreation, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Planning Artists (Damon Brown & Hasaan Kirkland), and a small team of community members are looking to commission an artist or artist team of two, to collaborate with and install a mural project for the Spruce St Mini Park Play Area Renovation. The selected artist/artist team will be asked to develop an artwork that reflects the history and diversity of the Central Area community. Please watch for information about the Call for Artists coming out next month and contact Jason Huff (jason.huff@seattle.gov) for more information about the art project at Spruce St Park.
