Washington Park Playfield Playground Installation

Updated: January 12, 2017

January 2017

The purchase of the new play equipment was delayed until late 2016.  Parks did not want to remove the swings until we had something ready to replace them.  Equipment has been delivered and Parks will move forward with the project in spring 2017 as soon as we can begin work.

Summer 2016

The Permitting from the State Department of Historic Preservation will be completed by the end of June. Seattle Parks and Recreation is ordering equipment and preparing for construction in July.

Thank you to everyone who attended the Open House on December 12, 2015. We appreciated all the input you provided and are excited to move forward with the design. 

This project was selected for the second round of Parks and Green Spaces Levy Opportunity Funding. The application received in this community-initiated process is a preliminary concept and the final design may be constrained by the project budget. All projects will go through Park's public involvement procedure which includes public meetings and community input. They will also go through an internal Parks process to ensure the most effective implementation.

This Development project will install a full playground at Washington Park Playfield. Include play structures for young and older children, seating for all ages and other elements for play.
