Tuesday night, hung out at Rochester Heights Park in northwest Spokane (Rowan and Magnolia) with about 90 people celebrating Night Out Against Crime. Met a lot of great folks. Ate more than my share of hot dogs. Saw more than the usual number of police and fire fighters in one place.
Tried to set up our A4A Spokane exhibit, but it kept getting blown away. Oh, well.
For those of you who don’t know, a group of community members from Spokane’s Whitman, Hillyard and Bemiss neighborhoods have been working on improving the park to make it safe and accessible. Part of the plan is to have a fully inclusive play area. Another is to have accessible pathways that meander in and around the shade trees and open areas.
We are proud to be partnering with the organizers to create a park that all can enjoy!
