Community encouraged to review site improvement plan for Magnuson Park’s Building 11

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to discuss the site improvements proposed by Cascade Bicycle Club near Building 11 in Magnuson Park during a public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015. The meeting will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Belvedere Terrace Room at The Brig in Magnuson Park, 6344 NE 74th St.

The Cascade Bicycle Club is a long-term partner in Magnuson Park. The group is proposing to construct:

  • Wood post and beam canopies on the east and west sides of Building 11.
  • Building 40 (Paint Shop) renovations for bicycle repair and storage.
  • A planter wall to capture groundwater seepage from a hillside retaining wall.
  • A traffic garden layout for conducting safety classes in a portion of the west alley.

Almost 15 years ago the North Shore Recreation Area Master Plan proposed habitat and boating facilities. Those were constructed in 2006 and included a pedestrian-bicycle path to Sand Point Way NE. Between 2011-2013 major improvements were constructed in Building 11, including an upgraded electrical system, ADA ramps, fire hydrants and a boat trailer turnaround. Since then long-term partners Seattle Waldorf High School, CBC, and Sail Sand Point have completed major renovations.
