The 2013 King County Parks Levy provides $800,000 in funding for this project.   


Planning and Design:  Fall & Winter 2019
Bidding: Late Summer 2020
Construction: Fall 2020 - Early Spring 2021 

Project Description

This project relocates the play area from the north end of the park to the grass area just south of the wading pool closer to the community center. This includes providing new play equipment and improved visibility and access at the new play area and restoring the site of the old play area.

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