Seattle Works, Friends of Shorewood Park, neighbors team up for work party

Thanks to Gill Loring for photos and news about a weekend event to beautify North Shorewood Park – organized by King County Parks and featuring Seattle Works volunteers as well as Friends of NSP:

We had a great time. The weather was perfect for working. Cleaned out around trees planted last year, added a few more and barked them to help keep down the weeds.

Cleared out along the trails and picked up trash. Several kids from the neighborhood showed up to use the basketball hoop and found it “busy” with a truck parked under it.

A wonderful thing happened – they volunteered to help, pulled on some Seattle Works tees and dug right in. According to Mark from KC Parks, they wanted to know if they could come back (Sunday) and help some more! Nope, just a one-day event.

  2. ..cute little park, could you please clarify the location as two different addresses are listed?

  3. Hi, Daisy, Just saw your post. North Shorewood Park is located on 24th Ave. S.W. between S.W. 100th/102nd. Has a small playground which should be replaced by late this summer.
