The First Hill Improvement Association is moving into the second phase of renovating First Hill Park, and will be providing a public update 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 28, at Stimson-Green Mansion, 1204 Minor Ave.
This will be the first update on the park since FHIA began a series of neighborhood design meetings last year.
Funding to carry out the future redesign will come from Swedish Medical Center, which has committed $500,000 to the project as part of its First Hill Mile pedestrian loop. The loop is part of a public benefits package Swedish has proposed in exchange for expanding its First Hill medical campus.
Park amenities showcased during design meetings last year included an arftul play area, more seating and an improved commons area.
