High Point Play Area Renovation

Updated: August 16, 2018

Summer 2018

This play area improvement project relocates the existing play area to the south open lawn area providing ADA access and increased safety by making the play area more visible from the street. The new play area size increases from 1,280 sf to 5,260 sf and upgrades it to our standard size for a community center. The new play equipment features swings, slides and many climbable features. The park features a rolling hill with net climber, and an overhead climbing structure. In addition to the play elements the project incorporates a new seating area, and in partnership with the Seattle Greenways Initiative, incorporates a bike path that connects the play area and Walt Hundley Playfield to a future Greenway proposed by SDOT at 34th Ave SW. The location of the old play area will be restored to an informal open lawn as requested by the community.

The construction contract was awarded to L. W. Sundstrom and work will begin August 20, 2018. The play area will be closed during construction.
