First Hill Street Scrabble Tournament!

Scrabble 080714

Come play! Seattle’s First Street Scrabble Tournament will be held in the First Hill neighborhood on August 12th from 4-7 pm. The intersection of University, Union and Boylston will be closed for the event.

Sixteen participants will be chosen by lottery to play in this life-sized speed Scrabble tournament. Each round will be timed to 20 minutes, and a referee will ensure rules of the game are respected. To sign up to be in the lottery, send email to streetscrabble@gmail.com.

This event brings attention to the First Hill Public Realm Action Plan– a collaborative effort led by Seattle Department of Transportation, Department of Planning & Development and Parks Department and supported by the First Hill Improvement Association. This Action Plan aims to develop a new public space network in First Hill.

This particular intersection has been identified as a potential new park space and gateway to a new Neighborhood Greenway on University.

More information about the Public Realm Action Plan will be available at the event, including interim design concepts for this intersection.
