Seattle Parks seeks input on proposed Cedar Park renovations

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to participate in the third public meeting for the Cedar Park renovation project.

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 6, 2015, 6:30 to 7:45 p.m., at the Lake City Presbyterian Church, 3841 NE 123rd St., Seattle, WA 98125.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocated funding to renovate Cedar Park in northeast Seattle on land leased from Seattle Public Schools. Recent coordination with Seattle Public School’s redevelopment plan has brought forward different options for this space and for the joint-use playground/park feature at Cedar Park Elementary School.

With the re-opening of Cedar Park Elementary the hours and park improvements will be restricted to non-school hours and days and there will be restrictions on kinetic play elements (swings) and sand play elements. Seattle Parks is looking for input on the accessibility of the space, play area elements and lease options for the future of this Seattle School District property.

Seattle Parks and Seattle Public School staff will be on hand to gather input and to answer questions.
