Kids’ Art in Pinehurst Pocket Park

Happy May! This month’s art in Pinehurst Pocket Park is by 9 year old Naima, who painted it at art camp earlier this year. What a wonderful water scene – watch out for that wave! May 7 is opening day of Seattle’s boating season. Thanks, Naima, for beautifying our little park! Come see the painting in the kiosk at NE 117th St & 19th Ave NE.
If your child (or you!) would like to show art in the park, contact PocketPark@PinehurstSeattle.org.

Pinehurst Flood Risks on FloodFactor.com

Like some other apps, FloodFactor calls our neighborhood that’s west of 15th Ave NE Pinehurst and the part that’s east of 15th Ave NE Victory Heights. You can type in the address of your residence to pinpoint the analysis. Here is sample information about Pinehurst:

Litter and Recycle Bins for Pinehurst

Pinehurst Community Council has a litter pickup route through Adopt-a-Street, though it’s not very active at the moment. But Adopt-a-Street contacted us to see if we would like litter and recycle bins in 1 or 2 Pinehurst locations. They must be in commercial areas, so that’s probably 15th Ave NE, Roosevelt Way NE, or the north side of Northgate Way. Another criteria is NOT near existing SPU garbage cans.

We’re probably getting one set at the Atrium strip mall on 15th (where Zylberschein’s Deli is). If you have any ideas for where a second set could be placed, please email us at info@PinehurstSeattle.org.

Here’s what they look like. They’d get picked up regularly by the company that already picks up garbage.
