Bitter Lake Playfield - Play Area and Comfort Station Renovation

Updated: November 24, 2020

Fall 2020

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to take this short survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BitterLake1 and provide input on the renovation of the Bitter Lake play area and comfort station/restroom. This is an opportunity to provide feedback on the restroom renovation and let the design team know the desired types of play elements you would like to see in the new play area. Please visit the park, 13035 Linden Ave N, and share this survey with your neighbors.

This project will replace the play area equipment and renovate the existing comfort station (restroom) with the goal of bringing these amenities up to current safety and accessibility standards. Accessibility for all is a value of Seattle Parks and Recreation. The comfort station renovation will likely include individually accessed, all-gender toilet facilities, and the play area will include new play equipment that is accessible to children of all abilities. In addition, the project will make other site accessibility improvements that meet the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
