PPS worked with Seattle Parks and Recreation to bring people and activity into Freeway Park, which has few users due to lack of signage and maintenance, and a perception of danger. PPS worked with the community to develop recommendations that included physical changes to open up the park and draw people in. The effort is beginning to pay off; the park is hosting lunchtime concerts that draw around 100 people, the Seattle Public Library will hold regular used book sales, and local business and residents are seeing a change in attitude towards the park.
