Seattle Parks and Recreation Launches Final “Fabric of the Community” Survey for N. Rainier Landbank Site
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) needs final community design input for the North Rainier Landbank park site located just north of the Safeway on S Charlestown St. between 34th and 35th Ave S. Please get involved. Neighbors of all ages are encouraged to participate and have their say on the textile designs that reflect the Rainier neighborhood.
Please complete this short online survey (https://seattle.surveymonkey.com/r/rainierfabric) and provide feedback on fabric samples suggested by the community. The goal of this engagement effort is to narrow down the textile/fabric designs we have gathered from the community and incorporate them into the design of the park.
SPR purchased two sites adjacent to the original park parcel, creating a significant new neighborhood park just over an acre in size and consistent with expressed community interests. Construction of the park will begin in the summer of 2022. The park will offer multi-generational activities and incorporate universal accessibility in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. A fitness area with exercise equipment for teens and adults is made possible by Kaiser Permanente Washington.
Initial funding for this park is provided by the Seattle Park District. Additionally, to help with the development costs of the new plots, SPR applied for several grants. We are awaiting final grant award letters before completing construction documents.
