Brighton Playfield Renovation
Updated: February 23, 2017
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Housing Affordability and Livability Open House in January and provided input on the schematic design for the Brighton playfield renovation.
Seattle Parks and Recreation hired DA Hogan as lead Design and Engineering Consultant. Surveying and geotechnical testing is complete. The field renovation will include markings for adult soccer, modified soccer, football, Ultimate Frisbee, baseball, and softball. Additional funding from a public/private partnership became available and outdoor adult exercise equipment will be added to this project and installed near the play area. Additionally, funding became available to renovate the comfort station and bring it to ADA compliance standards. These are both great additions to the project and make the park accessible for all.
During the planning and design phase of this project we have researched a number of alternative infield projects. We have met with the manufactures and will move forward with an innovative infill material for the field. During construction the field will be closed. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood.
Brighton Playfield, 6000 39th Ave S, 98118
Planning and Design: 2016 - 2017
Construction: Late Spring 2018 - Fall 2018
Completion: Late Fall 2018
See the budget and phase for this project on our Open Budget website. Seattle Parks and Recreation applied for the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program: Local Parks Development Grant.
Natural Turf to Synthetic and Lighting Replacement
The project will replace the existing lighted natural turf playfield (soccer, baseball, softball. . .) with a new lighted and renovated 200,000 square foot synthetic turf field. We will be looking at new/upgraded accessible pathways, spectator areas, reuse of existing seating/bleachers and connections with other existing park features.
Seattle Parks and Recreation is leading the way to find alternate synthetic turf field design sections/materials and deliver a safe, durable and playable athletic facility and experience.
