Puget Ridge Playground Renovation

Updated: June 19, 2018

Summer 2018

Thank you to everyone who attended the June 6 community meeting, reviewed the preferred design and provided additional input. Meeting notes and presentation documents are available for viewing below.

Seattle Parks and Recreation will be renovating the play area and installing new play equipment at the park. The proposal includes new play structures and enhancement to the park to improve seating and gathering, while maintaining the charm of the little park. The following information addresses common questions and concerns about the changes at the park:

  • The basic layout of the play area will not change
  • The park will remain fully fenced
  • New play equipment assessable to all abilities - focused on young kids
  • New play structures will be the size and style appropriate for our small charming park
  • Seating and gathering will be enhanced and accessible
  • One damaged tree will likely be removed (hemlock currently leaning toward the main play structure)
  • Design considerations include potentially:

    • enhancing the informal trail along the west fence line
    • removing the kiosk if not used
    • relocating the drinking fountain closer to the seating area (depending on cost and budget)

Location

Puget Ridge Playground, 6029 21st Ave SW, 98106

Budget

Seattle Park District provides $300,000 for planning, design and construction.

Schedule

Planning & Design: Spring - Summer 2018

Project Description

The renovation project will update the community-built park features with play structures accessible to children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12. The intent is to maintain the charm of the small park and enhance the safety and play area accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
