Montlake Playfield Upgrade
Project Information


Location: 1618 E Calhoun Street

Project Status

Renovations to the Montlake Playfield football/soccer field have been completed!

Thanks to Ohno Construction for preparing the field for the turf installation and creating a year-round surface for all athletic endeavors.

The renovation included replacement of the current surface with a synthetic turf surface and the work that will create the needed undersurface for the field. This surface will mean less daily and annual maintenance and will make the field safe, playable, and available much more often for community events.

Donation from Ohno Construction
Construction: November 2011
Completion: Late July 2012

Project Description

The renovated field will increase playable hours, promote safety with an even surface, reduce the year-round and annual costs of field maintenance, reduce the expense of field preparation, conserve water, and reduce the use of fertilizer and soil amendments. There is no proposal for lighted fields in the project.

Community Participation

Parks held two public meetings at the Montlake Community Center on October 10 and 13 to describe the proposed improvements and gather input from neighbors and park users.

Seattle Prep will take a few minutes to honor their alum, Yoshio Ohno, who contributed his time, talent, money, and materials to make this renovation possible. This will be a short pre-game event just prior to Prep's first game of the season.
