Build Lake City Together & “Pianos in the Park”
Pianos in the Parks is a public art and event series taking
place in parks and public spaces around King County. The
2019 program will include twelve pianos painted by local artists. One of which will be located in the “125th Lake City Mini Park”
Each artist will be given one piano, as well as photos and information about the public space where it will be placed. Artists must live or work in the Lake City neighborhood to apply for the Lake City location. Selected artists will receive $600 in compensation for the completed piano transformation, a $100 art material stipend, and lots of public recognition for their work. More details including live performances will be coming soon.
Neighbors Came Out For Spring Clean
Thank you to the 50 neighbors who came out to help clean up around Lake City on Sunday, April 7th. There were lots of new faces and many sighted that being active in the community was a way to alleviate some of the sadness they had been feeling about their neighborhood. A huge thank you to Annette from Kaffeeklatsch for helping to organize the event and for providing the delicious treats that participants enjoyed upon their triumphant return to the Mini Park. We collected 27 bags of garbage, over 20 needles and three shopping carts full of wet cardboard and other debris.
Please join us for one or more of our next clean up efforts.

“Build Lake City Together” provides everything you need to participate including gloves, grabbers, safety vests and trash bags. These events are family friendly and a great way to meet neighbors, give a little shine to Lake City and feel great doing it.
This Sunday, April 7th from 1pm – 3pm
Meet in the Lake City Mini Park where we will provide gloves, grabbers, vests and bags.

It is a great way to connect with neighbors and an easy way to feel good about volunteering. We will have some snacks and the chance to win some raffle prizes for those that sign in with us. See you there, rain or shine.
