In an effort to create a welcoming space neighbors and nearby employees can enjoy, City Hall Park, next to the Courthouse Building, will be full of games, music, outdoor furniture and a food truck through the end of September. Evaluation of this pilot program in the park will occur in the fall and continuation thereafter will be determined. Programs and daily activities in the park are always weather dependent.
Food trucks will operate daily, Monday-Friday from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., and be sure to check the schedule to see who is lined up each day: https://www.seattlefoodtruck.com/schedule/city-hall-park. A park concierge will also be on-site Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. There will be giant chess, cornhole and other games, bistro furniture and adirondack chairs, and musicians and performers from noon to 4 p.m.
This effort is part of the Courthouse Vicinity Improvement effort – a partnership between King County, the City of Seattle, Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) at The Morrison, Downtown Seattle Association’s Metropolitan Improvement District (MID), Alliance for Pioneer Square, and Sound Transit – to improve the safety and cleanliness around the Courthouse for employees, visitors and residents of the area.
