Community encouraged to participate in Baker Park on Crown Hill design

Join Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) staff for an open house on Saturday, August 12, 2017 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Baker Park on Crown Hill, 8347 14th Ave. NW. SPR invites the community to the open house to learn about the park expansion and improvement project and to provide input on design options for Baker Park on Crown Hill. Neighbors of all ages are encouraged to attend and let us know what amenities and park elements they would prefer in the future design. Light refreshments and children’s activities will be provided.

SPR purchased the .23-acre site directly adjacent and south of Baker Park on Crown Hill, 8341 14th Ave. NW, in 2013. The design of the addition will incorporate accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act standards and provide access to open space within this high-density neighborhood. SPR is working with the community on the design and encourages community participation. Thank you to everyone who participated in May.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by Seattle 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.
