ABOUT THE PARK
Located in the heart of West Seattle, Hiawatha Playfield is within easy walking distance to many Admiral District businesses including coffee shops, restaurants and stores.Acreage: 10.3
“A new era in public recreation in Seattle and in the Pacific Northwest was opened with the dedication of the recreation center on Hiawatha Playfield” in 1911. The Olmsted Brothers prepared the original design in 1911 for what was then the largest public playfield in Seattle. The Olmsted plan was drastically altered in 1932 when the demand for a longer running track caused its relocation from the east side of the center to the west and a redesign of the eastern half of the playfield.
