John C. Little Park needs your help Saturday

The Green Seattle Day organizers want you to know that volunteers are still needed to help out at another local park, John C. Little Park on South Beacon Hill, on Saturday, November 3. (We previously mentioned a work party at the Cheasty Greenspace.)

Volunteers will help remove invasive species, and plant native trees, shrubs, and ground cover.

The work party will run from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Volunteers should meet at the tool chest located behind the town homes along Holly Park Dr S. This area is located above the children’s playground in the upper part of John C. Little park. To reach the work area, follow the signs that lead up to the alley way behind the townhomes. The tool chest can be found under the large tree located halfway up the alley.

Please dress appropriately for weather conditions, and bring snacks and a filled water bottle.

Man shot in buttocks at John C. Little Park last night

Via the SPD Blotter:

On October 15th, at approximately 7:15 p.m., South Precinct officers responded to a call of a shooting in John Little Park in the 7000 Block of Holly Park Drive South. The call stated that shots had been fired inside the park and that lots of people were seen running from the scene. Officers arrived and located a 22-year old man who had been struck by a single gunshot in the buttocks. No one else was injured. The wound is not considered life-threatening, and the victim was transported to the hospital for treatment. Neither the victim or the several people with the victim could provide officers with any information about what had occurred. The Gang Unit will conduct the follow up investigation.
