Parks seeks input on community-initiated park at Fremont Troll

Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods and Harrison Design invite the community to a public meeting on Wednesday, June 11, 2014 from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, 4272 Fremont Ave. N.

At this meeting, participants can learn about the new community-initiated project at the Fremont Troll – Troll’s Knoll Park. It is an opportunity to review the site analysis and provide input on the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund design. The site is located in the right-of-way at the north end of the Aurora Avenue Bridge between 808 N 36th St. and 916 N 36th St.

The goal of the park project is to utilize existing public land to create a new park in the heart of Fremont. The park will be a model design of a sustainable park space. It will include a P-Patch community garden and provide a critical pedestrian link to the developing neighborhood business district in northern Fremont.

A second meeting will be held on July 16 to review the schematic design that will be developed from the Opportunity Fund design and additional community input at the first meeting.
