“PARK(ing) Day” under way in West Seattle and White Center


We just stopped at the White Center “PARK(ing) Day” (backstory here) park and are en route momentarily to the West Seattle version set up by KeyBank in The Junction. At the one in WC (more pix on partner site White Center Now), Sopha Danh of White Center Community Development Association and Richard Brown from Technology Access Foundation are going high-tech and low-tech – with laptops and produce – the latter, to help spark the dream of reviving a WC Farmers’ Market. The WC “park” will be on the west side of 16th SW, half a block south of Roxbury, in front of Full Tilt, till 3; the West Seattle one is scheduled to be in place till 4 – we’ll add pix here as soon as we get ’em.

    Wouldn’t this be a bit more effective if they did it on a weekend when there are presumably more people around?

    I think one of the main points is to mix it with the business day … during the weekend, people are out in other parks anyway. Theoretically, more urban parks near urban centers like business districts, the more you can go hang out in one during your lunch hour, etc. Now I’m off to The Junction! – TR
