Loyal Heights Play Area Renovation

Updated: November 12, 2019

Fall 2019

This project has experienced some unforeseen delays. Our Landscape Architect is preparing construction drawings. The City's stormwater code requires soil infiltration testing also, which required coordination with a geotechnical engineer. The infiltration testing took place in August 2019. We anticipate the bid will be advertised in early 2020 with construction occurring spring 2020.

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.
