New Play Area at Bitter Lake Reservoir Now Complete
Seattle Parks and Recreation has just annouonced that the new play area on the north side of the Bitter Lake Reservoir has been completed. This improvement is between the already existing plaza at the corner of Linden and N 143rd St. and the the new P-Patch. Below is the press release from Parks and Recreation.
Seattle Parks and Recreation is happy to announce the completion of the Bitter Lake Reservoir Enhancement project. Parks anticipates removing construction fencing and opening the area for community enjoyment by Thursday, January 10, 2013. The project site is located along N 143 rd St. and Linden Ave. N.
The overarching goal for this community initiated project is to provide a park-like atmosphere with useable amenities where the Bitter Lake community can gather and play. The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund project provides a new creative children’s play space between the new P-patch and the existing plaza along with plantings and irrigation near Mark Lere’s “Seattle Scatter Piece.” The area now meets current Americans with Disability accessibility and safety standards.
This project is one of 15 projects to receive funding through the first round of the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund. The Opportunity Fund provides $15 million in funding for community initiated park development or property acquisition projects.
