Community invited to provide input on new play equipment at Licton Springs Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to provide input on new play equipment for the Licton Springs Park play area. Please join Seattle Parks and Recreation’s Planner and Sr. Landscape Architect on Sat., April 30, 2016 from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the park, 9536 Ashworth Ave N.

This meeting is an opportunity to learn about the improvement project and provide community input. The project will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements and improve other features at the park.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this play area renovation. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites. 2016 is the first full year of implementation and will include funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog; and will fund the improvement and rehabilitation of community centers; preservation of the urban forest; major maintenance at the Aquarium and Zoo; day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities; more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, programs for young people, people with disabilities, and older adults; development of new parks; and acquisition of new park land.
