Project Information

 

Location: 1017 Lake Washington Boulevard East


Project Status

Thank you Seattle! This project is complete.
Seattle Parks scheduled the first games for this new playfield on February 1, 2013. The sports community is happy to have this new playfield that replaced the existing all weather sand/silt field with synthetic turf to provide adult soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, softball, pony league baseball, lacrosse, and football.

It also improves ADA accessibility and replaces the existing field lights with more energy efficient, neighborhood friendly lighting.

Parks worked with a lighting consultant and as with all lighting replacement projects it is Parks’ goal to eliminate as much objectionable glare and light spill into the neighborhood sky as possible, while providing safe and efficient lights.
