Loyal Heights Play Area Renovation

Updated: March 12, 2020

Early 2020

We anticipate the bid will be advertised in late spring 2020, with construction starting in the summer.

This project experienced some unforeseen delays. The City's stormwater code required soil infiltration testing also and coordination with a geotechnical engineer last fall. Construction documents are underway. 

Seattle Parks and Recreation hosted two public meetings for this project (meeting documents below).

During a mid-February 2018 windstorm, a tree fell on the play area and damaged a piece of play equipment. That play area equipment was removed.

This project will replace play equipment, provide access improvements and improve other features at the park. The scope for the project provides improvements to bring the play area into compliance with current play area safety standards and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access.
