This project will replace play area equipment due to insect infestation in old equipment. The new play equipment will meet current national safety standards and assure accessibility to children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12. Access improvements will be made to the play area, if needed, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Please offer your input on the play area equipment replacement by taking the Wallingford Playfield - Play Area Renovation Project Survey online.

During construction the contractor will need to close the play area. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood.
