Roxhill Park Events: 2019 Events Planning in Progress

Welcome to the Roxhill Champions site!

We’re a group of neighborhood volunteers working to make our park cleaner, safer and full of fun events.

Check out our blog to see what events we archived in our first summer!

We’re now in the process of implementing safety improvements and planning our community events calendar for Spring/Summer 2019.

Roxhill Park Community Map Project

We’re in the process of developing a complete map of Roxhill Park that will identify the Park Amenities, Signage, Trail System and Wetland Zones. We’ll be using this map to identify and implement improvements to the park. If you’d like to work on this map project get in touch.

Vote for Roxhill Park Trail Improvements in Your Voice Your Choice

Your Voice Your Choice is the City of Seattle’s participatory budgeting program, where we can vote for top projects in each district to be funded. Your Voice Your Choice voting is now open, with another opportunity to support our shared community on the list of potential projects to fund: trail improvements and other upgrades in Roxhill Park!

Vote here. You will need a mobile phone that can receive texts to vote online. Once you have confirmed your phone number with a code, you can go to District 1 on the map, then select Roxhill Park Trail Improvements (project 17-006) from the list by July 16th.

Imagine safe new paths through the bog, with some restoration of old work and clearing of areas that are overgrown. We have the chance to increase park use and improve our experience, and this can be our start.

If you weren’t aware, the park has a new group taking on the challenge of getting activities and events we can all enjoy in our shared community resource: the Roxhill Park Champions. Adding new features to help with wayfinding and engage users of the park can help extend this work and improve the park for all of us.
