Thank you to everyone who joined Seattle Parks and Recreation's Planner and Project Manager at the June 3 open house to learn about the project and provide input on the preferred design elements for the playfield. Your input is appreciated. See meeting notes below.

The Seattle Park District provides funding for renovation of the Soundview Playfield. The budget will define the scope of the project. The proposed project will include installation of synthetic field surfacing, lighting, ADA access and site improvements. We are committed to renovating the lower playfield with synthetic turf and lighting. We anticipate providing additional improvements for the upper field that will be defined by the budget. Seattle Parks and Recreation is investing in state of the art synthetic turf systems that are safe, playable and durable. Additionally, we are investing in the highest quality energy-efficient field lighting which minimizes spill light and glare off the field while providing performance recreational light. The project will improve the accessibility to the field in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

The lower playfield and some of the adjacent park facilities will not be accessible during construction.
