ABOUT THE PARK
B.F. Day Playground is adjacent to B.F. Day Elementary School in Fremont, at the corner of Fremont Avenue N and N 41st Street.
Fremont Avenue is named for the hometown of some early Seattle homesteaders, Fremont, Nebraska. The area that is now B.F. Day Playground was used for agriculture, fishing and logging. A trolley car ran from Fremont to downtown Seattle starting in 1900; the Lake Washington Ship Canal was built in 1917. The construction of the Aurora Bridge in 1932, which improved transportation links, also funneled traffic--and potential business--away from the community.
