Big changes are coming to the Fremont Troll (much to Knute Berger’s chagrin).

Back on December 6th, Seattle Parks and Recreation announced that the plans for Troll’s Knoll was among the possible recipients for their Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund grants.

On March 10th, Troll’s Knoll received that funding, which includes $685,000 to turn the land on both sides of the Troll into a new park space featuring a community P-Patch, pathways, wildflowers, new seating and more.

The City of Seattle will be implementing the project and they anticipate the planning and design to begin in 2012, with construction in 2013.

There will be at least 2 large public meetings to discuss the conceptual and schematic designs which the PAT will be integrally involved with.

Stay up to speed on the project by following the Friends of Troll’s Knoll on Facebook.
