If you use Jack Block Park on the northeast West Seattle waterfront, you might have seen signs about a park closure next Monday (September 10). We first found the event listed on the City of Seattle’s online Special Events Calendar. The National Tactical Officers Association is meeting in Seattle next week, and will be using Jack Block Park for a running event and barbecue. Peter McGraw from the Port of Seattle (which owns/runs the park) tells WSB that the entire park will be closed to the public for the entirety of what would be its operating hours Monday. A spokesperson for the NTOA tells us participants will be running a 5K course “on the sidewalk” to and from the park during the event, so in case you see more runners than usual along Alki at some point Monday, that’s what it’s about. (Though the city listing says street closures will be involved, so far everyone we’ve talked to says that’s not the case, they’ll be on the sidewalks.)
Sorry, comment time is over.
