Neighbors preview new park

Dozens of Whittier Heights neighbors attended a preview of Ballard’s newest park on 9th Ave. between 70th and 73rd. They toured the property, snacked on refreshments and signed up on a volunteer list.

Everyone said they’re very excited to have a new park in their neighborhood. As we’ve been reporting, the city recently purchased the property, and the owners have just moved out.

It’s beautifully landscaped. The plan is the demolish the homes on the property and trim the hedge, but much of the planning will be up to the park’s neighbors. The event was organized by the Whittier Heights Community Council, Groundswell NW and Friends of the Park.
