Seattle Parks and Recreation plans to replace the lighting system for the ball fields and tennis courts in Lower Woodland Park, but first it wants community input.
A public meeting is scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. next Tuesday, Sept. 4, at the Green Lake Library, 7364 E. Green Lake Drive N.
This project provides for demolition of the existing outmoded lighting system and replaces it with a state-of-the-art system. Parks goal is to eliminate as much objectionable glare and light spill into the neighborhood as possible while providing safe and efficient lighting for the field and court users.
The project is funded through a 2006 ballfield lighting upgrade program from the Cumulative Reserve Fund and the Parks and Green Spaces Levy. It provides for planning, design, and construction of the park lighting improvements.
Parks is working with an expert in the field of ballfield lighting who has extensive knowledge of the latest technology. The community is encourage to come to the meeting, meet the design team and learn more about the project.
