Second community meeting for Woodland Park Zoo Sensory Garden design is Oct. 21

The second meeting for community input on Woodland Park Zoo’s new Sensory Garden is from 7-8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 21, at the Phinney Neighborhood Center, 6552 Phinney Ave. N.

Seattle Parks and Recreation staff will present a preferred design that was developed from community input, and will gather additional ideas to be incorporated into the final design.

This community-initiated project develops a garden for the senses by adding enhanced sight, touch, smell and sound elements with the intent to increase accessibility and provide a welcoming atmosphere and experience for all. The Sensory Garden is an expansion of Woodland Park Zoo Rose Garden on .7 acres of existing zoo property. The new garden will be located adjacent to the Rose Garden at Woodland Park Zoo at 700 N 50th Street.
