Beacon Hill Playfield, a neighborhood park next to Beacon Hill Elementary School, features ADA-accessible basketball hoops and a children's play area, picnic tables, accessible restrooms, a soccer and softball field, accessible tennis courts and an accessible wading pool.

M.H. Young, who developed a street car line to Beacon Hill in 1895, suggested the name for the hill--and thus the playground--after the Beacon Hill of his native Boston, Massachusetts. The south half of the playfield site had been a waterworks, the Spring Hill Water Company, from 1881 to 1907. Its reservoir was served by a pump station on Lake Washington at Colman Park. Abandoned in 1912, the site was converted to a playfield in 1926.

Beacon Hill Playground Repaving Project

The tennis court, basketball court and comfort station have reopened. They will remain open while the project continues until Monday, July 16 when they will close again, for approximately six hours, as the asphalt is laid. Seattle Parks and Recreation is making repairs to the paving around the comfort station and basketball court at Beacon Hill Playfield. The repairs will replace the deteriorating asphalt, and improve accessibility. For additional information contact:
