Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to a public meeting on Wed., Aug. 17, 2016 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Miller Community Center, 330 19th Ave E. for Prentis Frazier play area renovation project. This meeting is an opportunity for the community to learn about the project and provide input.

This project will replace play equipment, provide access for people with disabilities and improve safety and other features at the park.  Prentis Frazier Park is located at 401 24th Ave E, Seattle, WA 98112. SPR Planner and Sr. Landscape Architect will gather community input and answer questions about the new play equipment.

Families, neighbors and park supporters are encouraged to attend and also participate in a park survey – https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PrentisFrazier. Light refreshments and children’s activities will be provided.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this renovation. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District 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. 2016 is the first full year of implementation and will include funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog; and will fund the improvement and rehabilitation of community centers; preservation of urban forests; major maintenance at the Aquarium and Zoo; day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities; more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, programs for young people, people with disabilities, and older adults; development of new parks; and acquisition of new park land.
