Roxhill Park in Westwood is about to get a skatespot (which has not been without controversy) and a playground renovation, and Seattle Parks has set the date for the first public meeting about the project. According to a postal-mail notification that, as of this morning, seems to have preceded the full online notification, the meeting will be 6-7:30 pm on Wednesday, August 10, at Southwest Library (35th/Henderson). The postcard says Parks staffers will “outline the project scope and schedule, and learn what the community priorities are for transforming the play area and incorporating a new skatespot into the park.” The skateboarding area is expected to cover about 8,000 square feet, which is about two-thirds the size of the under-construction Delridge Skatepark. The $1 million-plus Roxhill project funding is from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy.
