Pratt Park Spraypark Renovation

Updated: April 15, 2021

Spring 2021

The new spraypark is under construction. The timeline has been extended because of spraypark mechanical equipment shipping delays. We anticipate construction will be complete in spring 2021.

Poplar trees on the north side of the Fine Arts Center will be removed the week of April 19. The tree roots are compromising storm drain lines around the building. After the trees are removed, the contractor will install new gutters and downspouts on the buildings and repair storm drain lines.

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 northwest of the renovated spraypark and existing play area. The custom-designed restroom building features a butterfly roof and vegetated wall trellis systems, and a gender-neutral prototype being built in other Seattle parks. A rendering of the new restroom building may be viewed here.

This location will accommodate better pedestrian flow in the park and improve site lines into the park. New surfacing 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. 

Seattle Parks and Recreation 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.
