The Eastlake Community Council and other neighborhood groups have been working hard for several years to improve Terry Pettus Park at Fairview Avenue East and East Newton Street. Now it’s your chance to weigh in on the future of the park.
Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to join them online July 29 at 4pm to provide your input on four concept designs for the park. Please register for the online Zoom meeting at https://bit.ly/pettusparkmeeting1. Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to join the meeting. While we cannot meet in person right now, your input is important to us!
SPR acquired additional land to the south of the existing park, allowing for a new expanded park design. Thank you to all who participated in our online survey in the spring. When asked, what features would enhance your enjoyment of the park, the community’s top priorities were habitat enhancement, native plants and trees, shoreline restoration, more seating, better dock and launch area for kayaks and canoes, and better access to the water. We also heard that better visibility into the park was desired.
The online meeting on July 29 is an opportunity for the community to meet the design team from Jones and Jones Architects and Landscape Architects, ask questions about the design and provide input.
