Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold a meeting this Wednesday to discuss Dr. Jose Rizal Park’s off-leash area as well as future opportunities for the park.

Because of the recent snow and slush, Parks rescheduled the meeting to this Wednesday afternoon, February 1, from 1 to 2 p.m. The first part of the meeting will be at the park itself, 1008 12th Ave. S., and the second half will be held at the Quarters 1 conference room at the Pacific Medical Center building, 1200 12th Ave. S.

Topics under discussion at this meeting wil be the newly-redesigned off-leash area and the other partnership efforts in the park. Parks staff will address the following issues:

  • Why the off-leash area was redesigned and why it is 4.1 acres in size
  • Program and partnership opportunities to re-activate the park so it is safe and accessible
  • Identification of maintenance priorities and fund raising opportunities
  • Roles and responsibilities of Parks staff and volunteers in park maintenance and attention to ongoing issues

There may be mud in the park; dress accordingly.
