Adventure on the Red Baron Railroad

Categories: Residents|Tags: |

Nicolas @ Red Baron Railroad by: Phil Scroggs It’s Sunday afternoon in Crown Hill Village, and I’ve got a train to catch. Luckily, the Red Baron Railroad is just a short walk from my home in Crown Hill. I’m not bringing a carry-on bag; there would be nowhere to store it. I am bringing my camera.

And, you can help! Crown Hill Village is building a network of community allies: Crown Hill Connectors are the contact and advocate for their street/building/micro-community. They will share information, highlight issues or needs, and facilitate activities for night out and play streets (when it's safe).

Holman Grove

What is Holman Grove?!? Last winter, the Crown Hill Village Association and the Committee for Smart Growth created a project to help the community envision a neighborhood heart. The Bullitt Foundation funded a program to connect neighborhood groups with the University of Washington and the City of Seattle. The goal was to put public right of way to creative use. At the same time, the city’s neighborhood planning process was collecting community feedback about the community's priorities and vision. Crown Hill is growing quickly, and one issue identified by the neighborhood plan process is that there is no central [...]
