Two Ballard parks vying for city grant

Two Ballard parks are making their final presentations to Seattle Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund tonight in the hope of gaining funds to improve their parks. The two applicants will make their presentations, along with other local park applicants, at the Oversight Committee Open House and Presentation tonight at Northgate Community Center (10510 5th Ave NE) from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m.

The Whittier Heights Community Council is hoping to score a grant to expand and makeover Baker Park (8341 14th Ave NW) and are presenting at around 7:30 p.m. The East Ballard Community Association (EBCA) and Friends of 65th are hoping to be awarded a grant to purchase land and transform the rundown area at the corner of NW 65th St. and 7th Ave NW into a park for the local community.

The meeting is open to the public and both groups would welcome local support during their presentations tonight from 6 p.m. To learn more about each submission click here for the Baker Park upgrade and click here for the EBCA and Friends of 65th Project.
