Flo Ware Park
S Jackson St & 28th Ave S, Seattle WA 98144, (see it on Google maps)
This small neighborhood park at 28th & Jackson was dedicated to Floresina (Flo) Ware by the city on 5/8/82 in recognition of her many good works.
The park was renovated by the Leschi Community Council in recent years with city and foundation grants as well as private donations and sweat equity by dedicated volunteers.
A half basketball court was installed and small chess board tables which double as flat surfaces to eat one's lunch. There is a BBQ for more elaborate meals. The playground is modern equipment with safety features such as the spongy surface which softens falls. The art works are mosaics created by the art students from Coyote Central and the many inspiring comments of Flo Ware are embedded in the walkway.
The park is accessible by Metro bus #14.
The park is used by neighborhood children and students from the Seattle Girls' School nearby on Jackson. and the Leschi Community Council honors Flo Ware each year in May with a community potluck.
