Missing Piece funding approved!

Seattle City Council approved unanimously the recommendations of the Opportunity Fund Oversight Committee, which included money for Magnolia Manor Park.  The project will re-position the fences on the east side of the reservoir to connect the OLA and the P-Patch.  It also renovates the plaza area north of the dog park as envisioned in the original plan developed by the community in 2011.  The next steps are for Seattle Parks Department to solicit community input on the design and development of the area, probably with one or more public meetings.

Update on “The Missing Piece”

Funding to connect the Manor P-Patch and the Off Leash Area recommended to City Council

The Parks Levy Oversight Committee has recommended that funds to connect ‘the missing piece’ between the Manor P-Patch and the Off Leash Area be part of the Opportunity Grant list to be approved by the Seattle City Council later this summer.  Also included is funding for renovation and rehabilitation of the plaza area along the north side of the park.

This means that Manor Park truly becomes an integrated whole providing  Magnolia residents with an array of accessible neighborhood recreational activities – a place for children to run and play, families to have a picnic, community gardening, an off leash area for dogs, and a place to relax and enjoy the wonderful views.
