Othello Park Improvements
Othello Park Comfort Station
During interior renovation of Othello Park comfort station we uncovered severe structural damage that needed repair. The repairs required additional design and permitting (completed), construction has started on the repairs and should be complete by July 29. The project will also include new siding and painting. The base interior project included a new ADA layout, as well as new fixtures, finishes, and lighting.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the public meetings in the summer of 2015. Please see presentation and notes below.
Johnson Sutherland and Parks staff presented the goals and overview of the play area renovation and the Opportunity Fund project.
4351 S Othello St, 98118
King County 2013 Park Levy provides $500,000 for the play area renovation.
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Fund allocates $547,000 for the planning, design and construction of basketball court improvements, wayfinding medallions, and landscaping improvements that incorporate CPTED (crime prevention through environmental design) goals.
Both projects are combined under one construction project to provide for greater efficiencies and reduce construction impacts to the park.
Design: Summer 2015 - Spring 2016
Construction: Spring - Summer 2017
Completion: Summer 2017
This project was selected for the second round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding. The application received in this community-initiated process is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the project budget. All projects will go through Park’s public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks process to ensure the most effective implementation.
Improvements to basketball courts, installation of benches and game tables, prep for P-Patches, rain gardens and bio-swales to address drainage, way-finding markers embedded in walking paths, and expansion of the playground.
This project will occur in conjunction with the play area renovation project funded by the King County Parks Levy.
