David Rodgers Play Area Renovation

Updated: March 15, 2018

Spring 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended our second community meeting February 7 and to everyone who completed our online survey. At the meeting, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) staff hosted an Open House in the lobby area of the Queen Anne Community Center. SPR project planner, landscape architect, and project manager met with dozens of neighborhood residents, including many parents and their children. Attendees of the meeting provided input on various play equipment styles and the proposed layout of park improvements. The design team will consider feedback from the meeting and online survey in the final design for the play area.

Thank you to everyone who attended our first community meeting. At the first Public Meeting, Seattle Parks and Recreation staff hosted a booth at the "Trick-or-Treat on the Ave" event that took place on Halloween on Queen Anne Ave. At that event, the project planner and landscape architect met with Queen Anne residents of all ages and discussed design ideas for the play area renovation. Members of the public were invited to provide input on which Play Activity Types they preferred, what Play Equipment Style they preferred, and which of the two Concept Plans they preferred.

Please note that this was our first of two opportunities for public involvement. Our second meeting will take place in a more formal setting later this winter. We also had an online survey available following the Halloween event. The online survey has closed. Results from the Halloween event survey are located below.
