Parks’ Board Topics: Summit Slope Skate Dot, 520 Impacts

The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners will hold its next meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 26 in the Park Board Room at 100 Dexter Ave. N at the corner of Dexter and Denny.

The meeting agenda includes:

  • Summit Slope Park Skatedot discussion and recommendation to the Superintendent.
    • The Board will discuss and make a recommendation to the Superintendent on issues relating to the “skatedot” at the new Summit Slope Park on Capitol Hill. A skatedot is defined as “integrated skateable terrain (that) can be seamlessly integrated into small neighborhood parks and throughout the city by identifying existing spaces that already are or could be used for skating. These elements are small, up to 1,500 square feet.” The Board heard a briefing and held a public hearing on the issue at its May 12 meeting.
  • Washington Park Arboretum update briefing.

The Summit Slope skatepark briefing paper is available online, and the Arboretum update briefing paper will be available online as well at
