Highland Park Playground Improvements
Updated: March 15, 2016
Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Highland Park Parent Teacher Association invite the community to review play area equipment options and provide input for this playground improvement project at a meeting and open house on Monday, April 18 at Highland Park Elementary School. Please see more information in Events at right and the meeting poster.
Additional funding has been awarded to this improvements project. The "Improve Access to Highland Park" project was awarded $112,596 by the Neighborhood Park and Street Fund. And $450,000 is added for replacement of the play area. This work will be incorporated with the other project work and constructed in 2016. The scope of this work for the project is to relocate and replace the existing ballfield to allow t-ball, coach pitch ball and U-9 and under soccer, as well as provide access and safe bleachers for all. The ball field relocation project will install ADA access to the ball field by providing hard paving around the new backstop, into the dug-outs and to the field, as required by ADA. Relocating the field will provide enough room on the south side of the field for an ADA path to the east side of the park and for an extension of the Cloverdale walk.

Budget & Schedule
This project was selected for the second round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding. The application received in this community-initiated process is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the project budget. All projects will go through Park’s public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks process to ensure the most effective implementation.
Improve access into the park and play equipment that adds to the diversity of play experiences in the neighborhood. Attention to pedestrian flow will tie its new pieces together into a cohesive whole, create a better connection to the neighborhood, make the park more usable and safe for everyone.
