Parks is hosting a meeting for the skatespot schematic design on Wednesday, October 12, for the play area schematic design on Monday, October 17, and for the final designs of each project on Monday, November 14.
All meetings will start at 6:00 pm at Southwest Branch Library, corner of 35th Ave. SW and SW Henderson St.
At the first meeting on Wednesday, October 12, Parks’ design team will present the skatespot schematic design and invite the community to comment. Roxhill Park is located at 2850 SW Roxbury St., in southwest Seattle.
A skatespot is smaller than a full skatepark, but large enough to incorporate multiple skateboarding features. The skatespot is expected to be 8,000 square feet. For more information on Seattle skatepark planning please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/projects/skatepark.htm.
Funding for this renovation comes from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy that Seattle voters passed by a 59% vote in November 2008. The new $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
