Dearborn Park Play Area Renovation

Updated: January 14, 2021

Early 2021

We have taken information and ideas from the online survey and online open house to create a concept for the Dearborn Play area.

We heard a preference for nature play, a stronger connection to the surrounding wooded area, and the need to create a safer environment. Based on this, we developed the following concepts.

Please tell us what you think at Michelle.Whitfield@seattle.gov Capital Project Coordinator, or call at 206-465-8492.

Location

Dearborn Park: 2919 S Brandon Street, 98108

Budget

The Real Estate Excise Tax fund provides $557,000 for planning, design, and construction of the project.

Schedule

Planning & Design: Spring 2020 - Early Winter 2021
Bidding: Spring 2021
Construction: Fall 2021

Project Description

This project replaces the play equipment with equipment that is accessible to children of all abilities. Additionally, site accessibility improvements that meet the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will be made.

During construction the contractor will need to close the play area portion of the park. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood.
