Manor Park in Magnolia Seattle received $20,000 for the matching grant program “Small and Simple”, a funding project to benefit neighborhood organizations develop new projects in their communities. The project was created by The Department of Neighborhoods, and Magnolia received the grant for their “Envisioning a Vibrant Community Gathering Place for Manor Park” idea. The goal is to have a new landscape for the park which may include a dog park, play area, picnic areas and gardens. The park is approximately 1 acre large and is owned by Seattle Public Utilities. Congratulations on the grant and we look forward to visiting the new Manor Park.
Magnolia is adopting a new community event, and that’s the Family Fun Night (FFN) which will be held this Friday, Jan. 21st at the Magnolia Community Center. The Magnolia Community Center and Seattle Parks and Recreation joined together to create a community event that would be fun for the whole family. Event entrance is only $3 per child, and they can play in the gym-turned-playground with toys, games, and in bounce houses. The event will be from 6-8 pm and the Magnolia Community Center is located at 2550 34th Ave. West. Take your child(ren) this weekend and let them participate in some low-cost, high-energy fun!
