ABOUT THE PARK

Acreage: 4.4

HISTORY

When this playground was originally developed in 1911, it was given the community name of Rainier Beach Playground. In 1965 the community petitioned the Park Board to rename this playground in honor of a former resident who had achieved great fame in the baseball world, Fred Hutchinson (1919-1964).

(Edited from the files of Don Sherwood, 1916-1981, Park Historian.)
