Olympic Sculpture ParkPosted: January 22, 2007
The park cost $80M to build and was financed largely by private donations. Based on how crowded it was, I tried to imagine if city voters would have voted to pay for the park as a 100% public financed project. It’s such a beautiful addition to the city. If I were a betting man, I’d bet no. But in this case, we lucked out with some very passionate people pushing it through. I hope the city remembers this park the next time park initiatives hit the ballet.
