Friends of Ballard Corners Park

Email Campaign for Governor’s Office

Governor Christine GregoireHelp! If you think that Ballard Corners Park is a worthy project and needs the support of the Washington State Government, please take time to let Governor Christine Gregoire know. It is vital that she hear from us that we want and expect her support. You can contact her by clicking here.

The more people that contact her office, the better the chances will be that we will receive funding. It’s important to contact her quickly, as her office will release the budget later in December and decisions are being made now.

I have already sent the Governor’s office information about the park. I need you to write a letter of support or call the Governor.

Here’s a sample message. Please feel free to personalize it.

Dear Governor Gregoire:

I am writing to ask for your support in helping to build a new park in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

As you may be aware, the population density in Ballard is increasing rapidly. As the density increases, the need for open and green space becomes more apparent. The Ballard neighborhood has been identified as having the least amount of green space in Seattle outside of downtown.

The city of Seattle, in concert with the Friends of Ballard Corners Park and Groundswell NW, is creating a 10,000 square foot park along 17th between 62nd and 63rd. We hired an experienced Ballard firm, Barker Landscape to perform the initial design. Barker Landscape used the input from three public meetings, attended by as many as 45 neighbors, to create a park design.

Key features of the design include a gathering area, a children’s climbing structure and rain gardens that capture and filter storm water, improving water quality in Puget Sound.

I urge you to support the inclusion of funding for Ballard Corners Park in the capital budget.
