Seattle Parks and Recreation started construction on the improvements for the Madrona Shelterhouse on April 3, 2013. Parks had outside restrooms available for May Day on May 18, 2013 and is now working on completing the project. Parks expects to have everything complete by early June and will bring the outside restrooms on line as quickly as possible.

This project will reconfigure the mens and womens public restroom at the shelterhouse and an accessible family restroom will be added inside the shelterhouse. This restroom will be accessible from inside the shelterhouse and will be available year-round during shelterhouse rentals.

The shelterhouse is closed during construction. Seattle Parks has provided a temporary ADA porta-potty that will be available for the duration of the project.

Condemned "for park and playfield purposes" in 1927, the park boasts the first "modern" (concrete) tennis courts, which were built in 1930. The shelter house was a project of the Works Progress Administration, built in 1938. Recent play area improvements were spearheaded by a local community group.
