Baker Park is being expanded and redesigned.
We have the opportunity to make the Baker Park a community asset enjoyed by everyone, instead of community problem. Let’s take advantage of it.
The Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation will be hosting an Open House in Baker Park on Saturday, May 20 from 1 to 3 p.m., share potential design elements and collect ideas and input. There will be light refreshments and activities for children, as well as a tent with city representatives and information.
A number of community members have expressed concerns about neighborhood safety, particularly crime, drugs and graffiti in the park. More than 70 Whittier Heights and Crown Hill Urban Village residents braved the rain to greet city staff participating in last fall’s Mayor’s Find It, Fix It Walk that began with a brief presentation in Baker Park that focused on crime and safety.
Come, meet your neighbors, and let the Seattle Parks Dept. know whether you would prefer a pea-patch, a dog park, a playground or something entirely different.
See you Saturday, May 20! If you can’t attend but want to give feedback, take their survey here.
