Seattle Parks Holds Superintendent Listening Tour

Jesús Aguirre, new parks superintendent, invites you! Come to Community Open Houses September 22 & September 26 and meet him.

The department is hosting two large open houses – one south of the Ship Canal, and one north of the Ship Canal – offering great opportunities for you to meet and talk with the superintendent personally, as well as to learn all about the great stuff Seattle Parks and Recreation does. They will feature staff from all over the department to share their work – from the employees who buy and build new parks to those who organize summer camps to our park rangers. There will also be free children’s activities and food.
