Project Information


Location: 2101 N Northlake Way

Project Status

January 2015
Thank you to everyone that attended the Open House on September 9, 2014 and provided input. The Sr. Landscape Architect has taken the community input and will work on creating a preferred design for the play area. Please watch this space for a third and final meeting to be held in early 2015.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy included money to make improvements to the existing play area at Gas Works Park. The remnants of the play area are located on the south side of the play barn (the large covered structure with the multi-colored equipment).

2101 N Northlake Way
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy allocates $1.4 million dollars for planning, design and construction.
Planning: December 2013 - March 2014
Design: March 2014 - February 2015
Construction: September 2015 - January 2016
Completion: March 2016

Project Description

This project will provide for replacement of play equipment, access improvements and other work at this existing play area.

The scope of this project brings the play area into compliance with current play area safety standards and guideline efforts of the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) as well as meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
