Help design Echo Lake Park on Tuesday

From: Echo Lake Neighborhood Association

We have been waiting for years for Echo Lake Park to be redesigned and
upgraded - and finally it is our turn.

Please join us this Tuesday, October 18, 2011 from 7-9pm at Shoreline
City Hall in the City Council Chambers as we meet with Maureen
Colaizzi, Parks Project Coordinator, to let her know what we want from
our park.

More tables?
More benches?
A picnic shelter?
A level playing field?
Play equipment for children?

Maybe a rock wall you could sit on by the lake - or more shoreline?
Definitely a nicer restroom.

A water fountain for people and dogs?

Let your imagination go.

And in other news ...

Our wall mural at 1st NE and NE 205th is old and tired.  We have loved
it for years, but now it's time to let it go.
Is there someone who would like to be the coordinator to shepherd the
process of getting a replacement mural?  There will be a lot of help -
but we need someone from the neighborhood to be in charge.

Send us an email - tell us your background as a volunteer or professional.

Your ELNA Board
