Georgetown Playfield Play Area Renovation

Updated: January 18, 2018

Thank you, Seattle! This project is complete.

The play area renovation promotes health for all ages by providing state-of-the-art play equipment, fitness equipment, and improved pathways and playfield access.

The renovated play area features an airplane themed composite deck and rope climbing structure for children 5 to12 years old, a smart play structure for 2 to 5 years old, exciting rotating climbing play equipment, and a fun music band circle including drum, chime, and xylophones. The new fitness zone, sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, provides various types of exercise equipment for teens and adults. The improved picnic area creates a more inviting community space with additional picnic tables and BBQ grills. New accessible parking on S. Findlay St. and improved paths to the renovated comfort station strengthen the link between play area, spray park, picnic area and comfort station and provide improved access for all throughout the north end of the playfield.

The Seattle Park District provided the funding for this play area renovation and Kaiser Permanente provided the funding for the fitness area. This is one of many communities that will receive fitness equipment and benefit from the Seattle Parks and Recreation and Kaiser Permanente partnership.

There's a gym's worth of training machines at the Georgetown playfield. Fitness equipment installed includes: an elliptical trainer; chest/back press; squat press; pull-up/dip machine; assisted row/push-up; ab crunch/leg lift; and rotary torso to strengthen abdominals.
