Parks invites public to meeting on Gas Works Play Area project

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites families, friends and neighbors to an Open House meeting on the Gas Works Park Play Area renovation project on Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014, 5 to 7 p.m., near the play area at the park.

Gas Works Park, located at 2101 N Northlake Way, offers many park features including a play area. This project provides renovation to the play area to enhance the play value for children, provide amenities for children and their caregivers, and to improve accessibility for all users.

At the Open House, the community has the opportunity to learn about the renovation and provide feedback on the schematic design. Seattle Parks staff will be at the meeting to discuss the project and answer questions.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocates $1.4 million for planning, design and construction for the Gas Works Park Play Area renovation.
