The Seattle Board of Park Commissioners will consider changing the hours Broadway Hill Park is open during its March 23 meeting.
Seattle Parks and Recreation reports it instituted a nine-month pilot at Broadway Hill Park in response to concerns from nearby residents, making park hours 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. SPR staff is scheduled to provide a report to the board, followed by a public hearing, at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 23, in the Ken Bounds Boardroom at 100 Dexter Ave. N.
Friends of Broadway Hill led the design process, using two grants through the city’s Neighborhood Matching Fund program. The park site, which had originally been planned to be condos, was redeveloped through $750,000 in Opportunity Grant funding provided in the 2008 parks levy. It opened in June 2016.
Kerry Park has been under the same pilot hours for the same reasons, having formerly been open 24 hours. The parks board will decide on changing its hours at the March 23 meeting, also following a public hearing.
