With the neighborhood’s successful pavement parks being held up as examples for similar projects on Capitol Hill and beyond, First Hill is also looking at how to improve its 0.2-acre city park adjacent Stimson-Green Mansion.
The goal of this project is to come together as a community so we may understand priorities, develop a vision, and create concept designs toward making First Hill Park a safe and active open space for all.
Join us at First Hill Park (Minor & University) at 6:00pm on Tuesday May 24th for the first in a series of public workshops to gather ideas, priorities, and aspirations for our neighborhood park.
Our design team at SiteWorkshop will be facilitating this workshop, which is an open house style meeting with a short presentation at 6:15pm. The meeting is free and open to the public. Your voice is critical to developing the best possible plan, so bring a neighbor and come by for as long as you can!
For more information contact FHIA Director Alex Hudson at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope to see you there!
$25,000 in funding from the Department of Neighborhood will power the process to collect community feedback and shape a concept design for First Hill Park. A summer of park meetings is slated to follow next Tuesday night’s kick-off.
