Project Description

This project will develop a play area within the existing Hubbard Homestead Park. The goal is to provide playground equipment which will include play elements and access for children of all ages and abilities.  Improvements will include fall surfacing, seating, storm water mitigation and limited landscape improvements. 

As part of this project we will be decommissioning the playground at Victory Creek Park, 1059 NE Northgate Way, Seattle, WA 98125. Unfortunately, playgrounds are not designed and constructed to last forever and this playground was no exception. Under Parks and Recreation policy number 060-P 5.12.1, a decommissioning is necessary because it is substantially out of code compliance. The decommissioning of this playground will allow maintenance resources for a new play area at Hubbard Homestead Park.
