If you're looking for something to do this weekend; either by yourself, with a friend or your entire family -- there are lots of options.   September 24-25th is one of the busiest weekends I can remember for the greater Seattle “community.”
The United Way’s Day of Caring, the Port Townsend Film Festival, theAIDS Walk, LLS Light the Night Walk and Susan G. Komen 3-Day.  If there is a philanthropic bone in your body, it will be tingling!

Amidst all of this activity, the Seattle Parks Department has its own day of fun planned and families from all over the region will want to check it out.  South Lake Union has been under construction for as long as I can remember.  (We can see it from the upper floors of the KING 5 building.)  But this weekend, after a $20 million dollar capital campaign, 12 acres of green space  and waterfront access will be opened up to the public.  I had the opportunity to tour it recently - and boy is it beautiful!  It will quickly become one of the gems in the crown of the "Emerald City."  History, education, cultural heritage and recreation all combine in the transformed space.   If this season decides to provide us with any of those classically beautiful fall days in Seattle, you can bet this is where I’ll be spending my lunch hours.

This Saturday, September 25th all are invited to be part of the grand opening.   The entire day is free of charge and includes music, boat races, canoe displays and more.

Or just go!  And see for yourself. 

KING 5 was proud to be a media sponsor for this wonderful occasion… the opening of the park in our backyard!
