Reader Amy wrote to us a little while back with a question about Green Lake Park.
Amy, who visits the park at night, asked if the Parks Department has ever considered putting in lighting around the Green Lake loop.
I forwarded Amy’s question to Kelly Davidson, Project Manager at Seattle Parks and Recreation. Kelly reported that there is no current plan to put in lights around the Green Lake loop, and there is no funding to do so.
“If there is community interest in this,” Kelly said, “your readers may want to contact one of the Parks and Green Spaces Levy planners for information about the next Opportunity Fund applications. The deadline has passed for the current cycle, but there should be another coming.”
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund provides funding for community-initiated park development or property acquisition projects. You can read more about the Opportunity Fund here. The Opportunity Fund’s Project Planner is Susanne Rockwell. She can be reached at 206-684-0902 or susanne.rockwell [at]seattle.gov.
