Chamber seeks local feedback to “activate” Ballard Commons Park

The Ballard Chamber of Commerce recently reached a two-year agreement with the Seattle Parks Department to ensure that locals are getting the most out of Ballard Commons Park. To reach this goal, Ballard Chamber is planning a series of small and large community events to “activate” the park.

Through this “activation” Ballard Chamber hopes to reduce the negative activities that are currently a common sight in the park and to ensure that locals are able to utilize the park to meet their needs.

In order to put together a plan for the events, the Chamber is looking to locals for their feedback via an online survey.

“We’d like to hear your ideas about the types of events that could be planned for the park. It could be a smaller-scale event, such as a dog walk meet-up, a fitness class and buskers over the lunch hour. Or maybe a larger event like a concert or movie in the park,” says Executive Director Mike Stewart.

Although Ballard Chamber is spearheading the effort to activate Ballard Commons, they say that community involvement will be essential to the success of the events.

“While we’d love your ideas, we’d also love to know if you’re willing to roll up your sleeves and help plan and implement an event,” says Stewart.
