Planning Meeting For New Woodland Park Zoo Sensory Garden

September 3, 2015 7:03am

Seattle Parks and Recreation and Woodland Park Zoo are hosting a planning meeting for a new Seattle Sensory Garden at the zoo. The first public meeting for this project is Thursday, September 10, 2015 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Phinney Neighborhood Association, 6532 Phinney Ave N. in the Red Room.

According to the Parks Department, “the goal of the project is to develop a garden for the senses by adding sight, touch, smell and sound elements to increase accessibility and provide a welcoming atmosphere and experience for all. The Sensory Garden is an expansion of the Rose Garden at Woodland Park Zoo.”

The meeting is your chance to provide input about the proposed design of the garden.

This community-initiated project is funded by the Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund. Seattle Parks and Recreation has been coordinating with Woodland Park Zoo, the Lions Club, Hearing, Speech & Deafness Center, Lighthouse for the Blind, ARC of King County and the Phinney Neighborhood Association.
