Seattle Parks and Recreation to host public meeting for Lake City Skatespot and Basketball Court improvements at Vigil Flaim Park

 

Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting the final public design meeting for the new Lake City Skatespot at Virgil Flaim Park on Monday, Sept. 28, 2015 from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. at the Lake City Branch Library located at 12501 28th Ave. NE.

The community-initiated project is funded by Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund and develops a new skatespot and renovates the basketball court at Virgil Flaim Park.  At the meeting, the community will have an opportunity to review design concepts and provide feedback.  Staff from Seattle Parks and Recreation, Cascade Design Collaborative and Grindline Skateparks will be on hand to present the current design options and answer questions.

The skatespot will be positioned in the northeast corner of Virgil Flaim Park, which is located at 2700 NE 123rd St. in the Lake City neighborhood. A skatespot is smaller than a full skatepark, but large enough to incorporate multiple skateboarding features. The skatespot is expected to be 6,000 square feet.

This community-initiated project is funded by the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund.  The Levy Oversight Committee selected this project as one of the 14 projects meeting the criteria  to receive funding in the second round (2012/2013)  of the $15 million Levy Opportunity Fund.
