Soundview Playfield Athletic Field Renovation

Updated: August 6, 2020

2020 - Project Suspended

Seattle Parks and Recreation and the City of Seattle are experiencing significant losses in revenue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the summer of 2020, Seattle Parks and Recreation had to suspend capital project work and we were forced to suspend this project along with many others. The decision to suspend these projects is based on reviewing the projects through the lens of equity, health and safety, and whether or not they support an essential function. We are thankful to the community for their partnership and for their understanding. We will work to secure funding in future budget cycles.

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).
