Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community to learn about Bhy Kracke Park renovation project

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to the Queen Anne Community Council meeting on Wed., Sept. 7, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. to learn about proposed renovations for Bhy Kracke Park. The meeting is at Queen Anne Manor, 100 Crockett Street.

The project manager will present information and answer questions on the upcoming park improvements which include the installation of new retaining walls and pathway widening, pathway removals, and plant restoration. Additional information will be presented and discussed on options for the arbor located south of the play area. Bhy Kracke Park is located at 1215 5th Ave. N. Seattle Parks and Recreation anticipates starting the project in last summer 2017 with completion by fall 2017.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this improvement. The District approved by Seattle voters in 2014 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.
