Every so often, a Seattle Parks property gets extra attention via what the department calls a “jamboree” – with staffers from all over the city deploying to the chosen park. The next one is Lincoln Park, as discussed at the Fauntleroy Community Association‘s board meeting this week. Parks manager Carol Baker came to the meeting to share some early details:
First, in case you wondered, this isn’t some sort of kiss-and-make-up related to the now-dropped Go Ape zipline proposal – Baker says it’s been in the works a while, and the department has been making notes for months about what parts of the park need extra attention. Next week, crew chiefs will visit for a walk-through to come up with a specific work plan. The actual work is expected to begin the week of September 17th and last up to two weeks, with “sprucing up” expected for both structures – shelters, benches, buildings – and landscaping. They’ll also look at the drainage ditch that was covered a few years back, to see if it needs to be opened again.
FCA board members asked if there would be any opportunity for community members to help out; Baker said she’d check on that.
(Our first report from this week’s FCA board meeting, about a letter to the city regarding visibility of a school-zone warning light on Fauntleroy Way, is here.)
