Public Hours for Cascadia Elementary Playground

We received some questions from neighbors about the public hours for the Cascadia Elementary playground. We learned from the Licton Springs Community Council that the playground is expected to be open to the public in the evenings after school lets out (2:30PM) during the week and on weekends. Occasionally, there may be times when it's closed to the public for school based events. The playground gate can be locked by accident but if it is locked you can call SPS Safety and Security at 206.252.0707 and request that they unlock it.

As a follow-up, we are looking into the public hours for the track. Do you know them? Let us know in the comments!

Outlines Provide Sneak Peak of Street Improvements

A friend of the blog dropped a hint letting us know that a new traffic circle has been outlined for N 97th and Wallingford Ave N, which SDOT plans on having completed this summer! The circle will be a very welcome addition to the area, as, despite lots of warning signs and kids, sees more than its fair share of speeding.

Warning Signs Slow Down Man Location of new Circle

This new circle will complement the existing one at N 95th, hopefully reducing speed driving up Wallingford.

95th Circle

On my walk up to N 97th, I also noticed initials outlines for a continuation of the N 92nd bike path by the new School.

You can find out about some more street improvements scheduled to be completed this year on SDOT's Greenway & School Safety Project Website.

Enjoy this great weather! And hopefully, as the season progresses, we will all be able to enjoy some safer streets!
