Community rallies to bring Hillman City Parklet to life!
“A new parklet project in Hillman City, located in Southeast Seattle, has brought businesses, local students, and residents together to build a space for the entire community to enjoy. Hillman City Business Association in partnership with Waste Management Inc., and Turner Construction Company, developed a plan to transform two parking spaces into an open seating area to help activate the street and support local businesses. Celebrated as the most diverse zip code in the country, the Hillman City parklet will provide a much needed place for residents of the community to sit outside together and enjoy their neighborhood.” Shannon Sanden, Turner Construction
MacDonald-Miller provided metal screen mesh panels for the park benches. “When Turner approached us about helping them with a local community project, there was no hesitation. They made it easy and fun, and Hillman City reaps the benefit!” – Tristan Rynning, MacDonald-Miller
The ribbon cutting ceremony took place in November, and the community has been enjoying the Hillman City Parklet ever since.
