The city is quickly coming to the end of the construction phase for Gemenskap park (should be end of May), and the Parks Dept would like to partner with the East Ballard Community to put on a big party this summer to celebrate the culmination of the 13 years it has taken to transform this patch of pavement into a community park.
We’re currently seeking a few neighbors with party planning experience and time to team up with the Parks Dept on a planning committee. Our initial meeting will be Tuesday May 22 at 7:30PM. If you’re interested in attending, please contact Dawn at email@example.com for more details. Please also reach out if you’re interested, but that date doesn’t work for you.
Once we get a bit more organized, we’ll have a lot more opportunities for more neighbors to provide input and help with certain tasks. If you have a great idea, a special talent to share or just want us reach out to you for some help, please contact us and we’ll put you on the list.
And, of-course, we want you to come and celebrate with us! We’re shooting for a date in mid August when parks is ready to open up the lawn and landscaped areas to foot traffic. Stay tuned!
