Community invited to review design of Troll’s Knoll Park

Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Department of Neighborhoods and Harrison Design invite the community to the second meeting on Troll’s Knoll Park on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 from 6:30 – 7:45 p.m. at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, 4272 Fremont Ave. N.

At this public meeting, participants can learn about the new community-initiated park project at the Fremont Troll and see how public input guided the schematic design. It is an opportunity to review the design and provide additional input. The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund project 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.

For community members interested in learning more about the P-Patch program, please contact Rich MacDonald 206-386-0088 or Rich.Macdonald@seattle.gov.
