Participate in a Seattle Parks Study

Niall Dunne, Arboretum Foundation
Azalea Way at the Washington Park Arboretum

Seattle Parks and Recreation is undertaking a project to learn of ways to improve the specialty gardens in the Park system, including the Washington Park Arboretum. The project is funded by the Specialty Gardens division of the Seattle Parks Department and is being conducted by HR2 Research and Analytics.

HR2 Research and Analytics are conducting focus groups, with a $25 compensation (participants must confirm attendance with Haley Brown at hbrown@hr2researchandanalytics.com or 425-777-6718 -to receive compensation and ensure seating). Respondents can also participate in voice interactive interviews regarding park visitation by contacting Haley Brown.

The purpose of the groups is to learn of ways to improve the gardens, assess who is attending and where they come from, evaluate marketing effectiveness, and test the willingness for changes in fees or governance. We would like to primarily compose the groups of those who have attended in the last 3 years but are accepting up to 5 non-attendees as well, with a total of 15 per group.

Focus groups will occur on the following dates:

Volunteer Park Conservatory –
Wednesday, April 26th 5pm to 7pm
Montlake Community Center – Tudor Room
