City Hall Park activation

Facilities Management Division and the Department of Executive Services Director’s Office have been working with stakeholders for more than a year to help improve City Hall Park and King County Courthouse surroundings. Earlier this month, KIRO-TV ran a story about the collaborative efforts of King County and the City of Seattle to “activate” the park with games, food trucks, and buskers.

The soft launch took place on Aug. 6, attracting dozens of King County employees and other downtown people, who enjoyed the new amenities on a sunny day. King County Superior Court has also been promoting the park activation through its social media channels, and KCTV produced a short promo video.
