Updated: July 2, 2019

Summer 2019

Bids were opened on February 27 for the David Rodgers Park Play Area Renovation. The contract has been awarded to Danneko Construction. Construction will begin on July 10, 2019, and the new play area will open by October 2019.

Thank you to everyone who attended the public meetings for the David Rodgers Park Play Area Renovation. At the first public meeting, Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) staff hosted a booth at the "Trick-or-Treat on the Ave" Halloween event on Queen Anne Avenue. The project planner, landscape architect, and project manager met with Queen Anne residents of all ages and discussed design ideas for the play area renovation. Community members were invited to provide input on which Play Activity Types, Play Equipment Style, and Concept Plans they preferred. An online survey was available after the event. Combined results from the meeting and survey are located below.

On February 7, 2018, SPR staff held an Open House at the Queen Anne Community Center. SPR's project planner, landscape architect, and project manager met with dozens of neighborhood residents, including many parents and their children. Attendees provided input on various play equipment styles and the proposed layout of park improvements. The design team will consider feedback from both meetings and the online survey for the final play area design. The preferred play equipment option can be viewed here.
