From WWRHAH: Planning TLC for Roxhill Park; traffic safety updates

August 14, 2013 at 10:30 am | In Arbor Heights, West Seattle news, Westwood | 4 Comments

It has a new playground … a new skatepark … and now, Roxhill Park is in line for a big day of TLC from neighbors, led by the Westwood-Roxhill-Arbor Heights Community Council (WWRHAH). The nascent plan is one of many topics tackled at last night’s WWRHAH meeting, per the detailed meeting notes published by council secretary Joe Szilagyi. As it has been throughout the council’s months of existence, traffic safety was high on the discussion list too, particularly SW Roxbury issues. If you’re in the WWRHAH area, make plans to be there in person next month (usually the 1st Tuesday – this month was an anomaly – watch wwrhah.org for meeting updates).

  2. Roxhill Park is in desperate need of cleanup. It especially needs pruning along the SE trail, which has become a hangout for drug use and exchange, as well as transients. Then there are the invasive weeds taking over….

  3. Not sure if this will even reach the appropriate people, but the new playground, while FABULOUS – has monkey bars that kids cannot reach. My daughter is 6 (but the size of an 8 year old) and has been monkeying around on bars for years. We call her the monkey bar master. However, she cannot get up to the bars without help from mom and dad. Ridiculous! I hope the height can be adjusted down a good foot!

  4. Monkey,
    .
    I don’t know about lowering them (doubtful), and stairs are right out. What about attaching more climbing hand/foot holds like those found on climbing elements north of the monkey bars? A quick, cheap, and elegant solution. Parks would probably go for that.

    Hats off to the WWRHAH council. Those folks are really doing good things for this community. Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world…
