The Friends of Smith Cove Park invite YOU and your neighbors to participate in the presentation of a draft concept plan (preferred plan) for Smith Cove Park!
You and your communities have hosted and attended public meetings, submitted on-line comments and support, and helped shape this future signature park of Seattle, thanks to grant funding from the Seattle Department of Neighborhood.
Community-based planning was instrumental in the conceptual design process for this park, and the Friends along with Berger Partnership (hired landscape architect) would like to describe the design process, present the results of community input, and roll out the preferred plan for Smith Cove. Public meetings have yielded vital community feedback that supports this preferred plan, which includes park features and uses such as a hand-carried boat launch, beach access, multi-sport playfield, sand area for volleyball, family discovery and play areas, improved access and circulation, and much, much more!
Since January, you and your neighbors, with the help of City funding and support, have been involved and shared your wishes, dreams and ideas for a new and improved Smith Cove park and playfield. Please come to our last public meeting and see what we’ve shaped! Whether you can attend or not, go to www.seattlesmithcovepark.org for more information and to view the preferred plan (posted after this last public meeting), register your name and provide public comment (that will be seen and counted by the City).
