FOLLOWUP: ‘Open house’ set for new Lowman Beach Park racket-court proposal

As reported last year, the project to remove the failing seawall on the north side of Lowman Beach Park will also remove the park’s tennis court.

As noted at July’s Morgan Community Association meeting, community members are proposing a new racket-sport court elsewhere in the park, and they have announced a “virtual open house” for later this month. It’ll be at 6:30 pm Wednesday, August 26th.

Details for participating in the meeting are on this flyer.

    I believe we citizens of the Independent Republic of West Seattle can find a design for court that can accommodate both games and it seems like the  kayak storage is a no brainier.  Come on locals let us imagine something uniquely yar and diverse!Alki, skookum.

    What is a racket court in this context?  If there is no room for tennis and the proposal “racket court” is vague, is it correct to  just call it a pickleball court?It is difficult to replace fond memories of our family picnicking, launching  our sailboat and learning tennis at that unique park.

    Don’t “civilize” the park. Keep it as green and open as possible with the minimum of paving for the racket court and any walkways.  NO public art! Preserve the wonderful big leaf maple trees. Re site the benches (and repair the one nearer the water which some idiots have shoved  so as not to sit straight.) Kids play equipment in addition to the swings would be great, as would picnic tables in shade and sun.

Sorry, comment time is over.
