Some new lights are scheduled to be installed at the Lower Woodland Skatepark.
The 17,000 sq. foot skateboard park opened in the spring of 2008. It is located at the western end of the space between Soccer Field #2 and the cloverleaf ball diamonds at Woodland Park.
Kelly Davidson, Project Manager at Seattle Parks and Recreation, says that the Parks Department plans to add light to existing poles at the skatepark. “The new lights would be focused on the skatepark only,” Davidson told us. She said that the lights would be on a timer and would not run all night. “They would likely go off at 10:00,” she said.
The deadline for public comments on this project is Oct. 22, 2010. Comments should be sent to Kelly Davidson: Kelly.Davidson [at] seattle.gov.
Thanks for the tip, Tracy!
Update, Dec. 22 2010 – The Parks Department has put a hold on installing new lighting due to insufficient funding. Read more here.
