We went to Chinatown and was told that we were getting a tour. The one who gave us the tour was a non-profit organization call Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority or SCIDpda for short.They serve food to seniors at a very low price and after they finish they can walk around the community park.
Inside this park, they have a ping pong table and on some days during summer. For example they host movie night and performers. But the park is currently under redevelopment and they were kind enough to show us the finish design.But, they have a very low budget because of they have to remove the contaminated soil and break down the old building. when you add both cost together, it cost about 3millon dollars. So they only have about 1.5millon dollar to build the second part of the park.Before this, there was another park that was redesigned and the park was called The International Children Park.
Also known as The Dragon Statue, use to very unsafe place to hang out.The trees made it very made a very good place for the drug dealers to hide undetected, which is why the park is unsafe.This was the first time the community went up to them and ask them to recreate the park.They didn't know what to do, since it is their fisrt time. But, in the end they still manage to do a good job re creating the park.Now that the park is more visible, the drug dealers stopped and the community started using the playground.
I would like the San Franciscos community park to get a recreation like the parks here. Even though our park is safe, the park is losing the amount of people using it. This would attract more people to come and kids will enjoy the equipment more than before
