The Seattle City Council has proposed a Metropolitan Park District (“MPD”).
The deferred maintenance backlog for Seattle’s parks and recreational facilities is now at $267 million and the current levy ends this year.
This issue will be on the August 5 ballot.Thursday, June 12, 2014 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm Catharine Blaine School 2550 34th Ave W. (Next to the Magnolia Community Center)
For more information please read the Meeting Flyer.
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.

February 9 – 10 was another productive weekend thanks to the 12 amazing volunteers that showed up. Erik Gundersen’s fabulous plans for our shed are being implemented. We have about 2/3 of the pavers laid for the shed and community area.
The retaining wall started the week-end of February 2nd is almost complete with back fill of pea gravel. We are having more concrete blocks delivered this week and will start the next retaining wall. The blocks are smaller and should be easier to handle.
Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel has donated six cubic yards of pea gravel, and given us 50% off on all other materials we order. Mutual Materials has joined in helping by providing a great price cut on the pavers and other materials we needed to lay the pavers.
And thanks to Ann for delivering her wonderful soup on Saturday, and to Susan for her wonderful soup on Sunday.
Please let us know if you would like to make and deliver food for the volunteers. It counts as volunteer hours. We eat standing up and it really makes a difference!
Please do not feel that you need a special skill to join us. There are many things to be done! And shoveling pea gravel and mulch and moving it with wheel barrows is important!
Reminder: Please turn in all your volunteer hours through January 31. Please contact Sharon Knoll if you have any questions.
Upcoming Work Party Projects:
Work Party Projects Week End of February 9, 10 – 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
1. Laying 130 pavers which will be our community area and the floor of our shed
2. Spreading mulch and burlap bags
Mutual Materials in Bellevue has given us a substantial price break on the price of the pavers and we thank them.
And Salmon Bay Sand and Gravel has once again come through with a price break with the 20 cubic yards of pea gravel they are donating.
We need everyone, not just ‘skilled’ people to come help. Please join us. We do have fun and we even get to rest sometimes!
