If you live near the new Gemenskap Park on 14th Ave. NW, there’s a community meeting tonight (Thursday) that you may want to attend.
The East Ballard Community Association (EBCA) and St. Alphonsus have teamed up with Seattle PD, Parks and Recreation and the Department of Neighborhoods to hold a meeting to “share concerns as well as ideas to ensure the park and surrounding neighborhood remain a safe and vibrant place for our community.”
The meeting runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the St. Alphonsus Family Center (1415 NW 58th St).
Then this Saturday, EBCA is inviting volunteers on the “Summer Clean Sweep,” cleaning up 14th Ave. NW and the park site. Food and beverages will be served, and kids are invited, too. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Meet at Blowing Sands Glass on 14th Ave. NW and NW 58th St.
While not quite complete — landscaping has been delayed due to utility work — Gemenskap Park is expected to open later this summer.
