Delridge Playfield
Parks and Green Spaces Levy
Project Information

 

Location: 4458 Delridge Way SW, Seattle WA 98106


Project Status

Thank You Seattle. This project is complete.
The athletic field community and the Delridge neighborhood came out to celebrate the new fields on March 12, 2011.

Seattle Parks and Recreation removed the construction fencing from around the playfield complex on February 15, 2011. The renovated fields now support baseball, softball, Ultimate Frisbee, soccer, men's and women's lacrosse. The size of the the field complex accommodates several of these sports simultaneously.

Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract to A-1 Landscape and Construction, Inc. Construction began in early July and the contractor is eager to finish the project. Parks held two public meetings for this project at the Delridge Community Center. The landscape architects presented a schematic design at the first meeting and went over the project summary.

After community input the design now incorporates two striped soccer fields, one softball field, one baseball field, one woman’s lacrosse field overlaying the north soccer field, one men’s lacrosse field overlaying the south soccer field, two striped Ultimate fields overlaying the south soccer field, and one smaller Ultimate field demarcated with ‘cone dots’ overlaying the north soccer field. The ADA accessibility to the north will be maintained and ADA access to the south will be added from the south parking lot.

Please see meeting notes below and the design to the right.
