As part of our Pavement to Parks project, SDOT is planning to test a new public open space on Capitol Hill this year – with Pac-Man!
SDOT recently hosted a pop-up demonstration park in that neighborhood and invited the community to submit and vote on their favorite maze-themed mural designs for the street.
The winner? Pac-Man!
This new open public space will use adaptable materials to repurpose the underutilized segment of Summit Ave E between E Denny Way and E Olive Way for a vibrant community gathering place.
Pavement to Parks projects use short-term strategies to deliver new public spaces that will serve as front yards, playgrounds, social spaces, and active zones.
SDOT began installing Pavement to Parks projects in summer 2015 and will be continuing to develop new projects through the city. If you have a great idea for a Pavement to Parks project in your neighborhood, please contact Susan.McLaughlin@Seattle.gov or call 206-733-9649.
