Project Status

Thank you Seattle.
This project is complete. Work was completed ahead of schedule and on budget. The community consensus was to not hold an opening celebration.

Based on the input from public meetings and available budget, this project replaced outdated play equipment with climbing dome structure and tree house themed play equipment. The existing swing set was also replaced with one of comparable height. A loop trail circulates around the play equipment with benches and picnic tables.

Thank you to all who attended the planning meetings for the playground renovation!
