On Saturday September 25, please join Seattle Parks Foundation for the grand opening and dedication of the Lake Union Park with their partners from The Center of Wooden Boats, Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI), The United Indians of All Tribes, and the City of Seattle.
“We believe Lake Union Park will become one of the most popular parks in the state. It has everything – water, a historic armory, places to play, boats, and a 6.2 mile loop that joins the whole lake to the park,” says Doug Walker, Seattle Parks Foundation board member, and co-chair of the Lake Union Park Campaign Committee.
Through the entire day, beginning at 7 a.m. and lasting until 7 p.m., celebrate amongst community members and park supporters with a wide range of community activities as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony that is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. A great atmosphere will be provided through fun family activities, a Farmer’s Market and much more. The grand opening marks the completion of the final phase two construction which began in 2008.
Full details of the Lake Union Park Grand Opening Celebration can be found at the Lake Union Park Grand Opening website. Also, for location and directions, please visit the Parks Department website. To get further involved, find Seattle Parks Foundation on Facebook here and on Twitter @SeattleParkFndn.
If you would like to volunteer at this event please contact Lydia Bassett, Deputy Director, at 206.332.9900 x15.
