Seattle Parks and Recreation would like to gather your feedback on three concepts for the new park being developed at 48th Ave SW and SW Charlestown St. Seattle Parks and Recreation held a public meeting on April 30 to share findings from the community meeting on February 24 and the first online survey and to collect input on three concepts. The April 30 meeting was well attended, and there were many comments. This second survey provides an opportunity for likely park users and residents who were unable to attend the meeting the opportunity to provide input.
Following community input from this survey and the April 30 meeting, the design team will develop a preferred design concept. The preferred design will be presented at the third and final community meeting this summer.
The three concepts with a summary and the description of the site are shown below.
About the site: the site is 0.33 acres, about 25% smaller than nearby Ercolini Park. It is located in a single-family neighborhood with some multi-family buildings. The site was acquired with the help of King County funding that restricts use to low-impact, passive recreation. The funding also limits the amount of impervious surface to 15% of the site area or less to provide green open space and improve stormwater infiltration.
About the three concepts:
Dog Friendly - this concept would include a fenced off-leash area for dogs, a lawn, a loop trail, and a picnic area with tables.
Community Green - this concept would include a big central lawn, a loop trail, a nature discovery trail, a dog comfort station, and a small plaza-like area with moveable tables and chairs.
Neighborhood Play - this concept would include a play area, a lawn, a nature trail, and a small plaza-like area with moveable tables and chairs.
