  • Play Area


6 a.m. - 10 p.m.


This little neighborhood park features a sand pit for the kids and a long hillside slide that is a lot of fun! There are benches and a small lawn area overlooking the park where parents can sit and watch the kids play. It is connected to the SW Queen Anne Greenbelt, and provides access to its hiking paths via the staircase next to the hillside slide.

Acreage: 1.1


The land that the play park now sits on was purchased in 1982, and was subsequently improved in 1983 by the RPM Company at a cost of $64,790.71.
