The completion of Gemenskap Park on 14th Ave NW is being celebrated on Saturday, (Oct. 27) with a Fall Festival and Halloween costume parade planned from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
Gemenskap (pronounced yuh-MEN-skawp), Swedish for “community”, is a two-block park on 14th between NW 59th St and NW 61st St. It’s been in the works for 13 years, so naturally, neighbors are ecstatic that it’s finally finished.
The East Ballard Community Association and Seattle Parks will be hosting the festival, with the parade happening at 10:30am. There will be music, pumpkin decorating, treats and activities for all ages.
