Summer 2023

The Ward Springs Play Area Renovation Project has begun! The project is currently in the planning phase. For more information and to learn about future engagement opportunities, please visit the Engagement Hub for Ward Springs.


Ward Springs Park: 925 4th Ave N, 98109


Seattle Parks District Major Maintenance provides $430,000 for planning, design, construction.


Planning: Summer - Fall 2023
Design: Fall – Winter 2023/2024
Construction: 2024

Project Description

This project will replace the existing play equipment with new equipment that meets current safety and accessibility standards. All improvements will be compliant with the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 
During construction the contractor will need to close the play area portion of the park. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood. Thank you for your understanding as we all work towards a new play area for children of all ages and abilities!
