Spring 2023

Planning is underway for Hutchinson Playground Renovations! We are currently connecting with community partners such as Seattle Public Schools and The Friends of Hutchinson Playground.

A survey will be open in early summer to gather feedback form the Hutchinson Playground community and an engagement opportunity to provide feedback is being planned for late summer.
