The City of Everett is inviting people to take a look and make comments on the latest plans to update Henry M. Jackson Park in north Everett. For two years planners have been getting input from residents, school kids and anyone else with an interest in the park. On April 22nd community members will have the chance to see the park designs, ask questions and provide feedback on the community park component of the 14 acre site.

According to a press release provided by Meghan Pembroke at the city, the park renovation project will include replacing outdated play equipment, developing new gardening and open spaces and providing more accessible space for recreational activities.

The total estimate for design and construction of the new park elements is $2 million. The project is funded in part with grants from the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office through the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program, the Washington State Department of Commerce, the Federal Department of Housing and Urban Development and Snohomish County Parks.

The public meeting will happen Tuesday, April 22, from 7 to 8 p.m. at the Hawthorne Elementary School Library, 1110 Poplar Street.
