Located next to one of the most popular playgrounds in the City of Seattle, the wading pool at Powell Barnett Park provides no-fee access to shallow water play and relief from summer heat for our community’s children. Sadly, the wading pool has been closed for the last two summers and is slated to remain closed for the Summer of 2011 because of continued budget cuts. To address the situation, Seattle Parks and Recreation has announced they are looking for Sponsors/Partners to help fund the operation of the pools the summer.
We need to raise $13,200 by MAY 1, 2011 to open the pool from 12 – 7pm, three days/week this July and August. Make a donation today to help open the pool:
1. From your PayPal account/Credit Card: Click on http://goo.gl/isSBj or copy and paste it into your browser.
2. By check made out to: Leschi Community Council, with the note “Powell Barnett Wading Pool”. Mail to: Leschi Community Council, PO Box 22391, Seattle, WA 98122.
3. Pledge to donate by May 1 by sending an email to [email protected]
This campaign by local parents and community members is a Special Project of the Leschi Community Council (a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit) and is supported by the Central Seattle Parent Resource group and the Madrona Community Council. For questions or to volunteer, contact Melissa at [email protected] or visit the pool’s Facebook page.
Don’t let another summer go by without our wading pool in Powell Barnett Park!
