Seattle Parks seeks ideas on Westlake and Lenora park space

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to a public meeting on Tuesday, June 17, 2014 at 2100 Westlake Ave. on the northeast corner of Westlake Ave. and Lenora St from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Seattle Parks is in the design process for a new park in the Denny Triangle Urban Village Center at 2100 Westlake. This meeting is an opportunity for the community to review schematic designs developed from input from the community and information gathered from a community survey about the park.

In December 2008, Seattle Parks purchased the 8,722 square foot space to fill a green spaces gap in the neighborhood. It is a “land bank” property being held in its current condition until funds to develop it become available. Funding is currently available to pursue a schematic design for the park. An alley exists between the park property and the adjacent tower development site. Parks is working with the adjacent developer to vacate the alley and bring mutual benefit to both parties.

The community is encouraged to be part of the process and provide input on the project. The current budget of $150,000 is allocated towards the planning and design phase.
