Pratt Park Spraypark Renovation

Updated: April 18, 2017

Spring 2017

New elements have been added to the project, including a new restroom building, mechanical equipment building, and adult fitness equipment. The new buildings will be located between the existing spraypark and the play area. This will accommodate better pedestrian flow in the park and improve site lines into the park. New surfacing at the water spray feature and a recirculating water system for the spraypark will increase safety, water efficiency, and play value. Also, Seattle Parks and Recreation is partnering with a community partner to install adult fitness zone equipment at Pratt Park. 

We anticipate having the spraypark closed during the summer of 2017 to accommodate construction. We will work with the contractor to minimize impacts to the rest of the park.

Seattle Parks and its design team, Site Workshop, thank you for your input during the design process for the spraypark renovation project. This feedback assisted us in preparing the overall design of the new feature and its elements.

We anticipate putting the project out to public bid in summer 2017, with construction beginning in late 2017. Please revisit this site for project updates.
