Project Status

Thank you Seattle!
Seattle Parks and Recreation opened the Highland Spraypark in late June 2013.

Parks presented the final design for this new spraypark to the community in March 2012 and construction began in early 2013.

Parks selected SiteWorkshop as the design consultant for this project. Together they presented spray features and design ideas at the first public meeting held on May 25, 2011. Approximately 35 West Seattle residents came out to discuss spray park features and how those features could best fit Highland Park.

The Levy originally allocated $200,000 for this project. Through the community initiated Opportunity Fund process, the Levy Oversight Committee became aware that this project needed additional funding. The project received additional funding from the Levy inflation. This will allow for full water re-circulating systems and provide a better play experience and water conservation.


LOCATION
1100 SW Cloverdale St, Seattle WA 98106
BUDGET
$635,000 from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy for planning, design and construction.
SCHEDULE
Planning: Spring 2011
Design: Spring 2011 - Fall 2013

Project Description

Identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy this renovation project provides for the conversion of the existing wading pool into a spraypark.

The design team will work with the community through a series of public meetings to develop a recommended design of possible spray features for the wading pool conversion. Consideration will be given to ADA accessibility, as well as long-term maintenance, operation costs and sustainable design.
