Sequim: Board wants to improve Carrie Blake Park

SEQUIM — The city Parks Advisory Board wants to improve Carrie Blake Park next year.

The improvements, including acoustic upgrades of the Guy Cole Convention Center and construction of a new road through the park, were among several priorities outlined Tuesday by the board.

The convention center is located in the park.

Chairwoman June Robinson said fixing the acoustics of the convention center is the top priority for the board next year. Construction of a new road through the park, located off of Blake Avenue, is also a priority.

The current park road intersects two playgrounds and the main pond. That brings children too close to traffic, Robinson said.

The board’s priorities also include replacement of trees removed between Carrie Blake Park and the skateboard park and completion of softball fields.

Jamestown Construction has started leveling the ground for the fields, which are being built south of the convention center.
