The Yesler Playfield was constructed in 1939 by the City of Seattle to complement the new housing at Yesler Terrace. It is now a small sports field.
This park is impacted by a current project
The scope of this project is to develop a 1.7 acre neighborhood park that is part of the Yesler Terrace Master Planned Community. The Seattle Housing Authority will transfer ownership of this property adjacent to the Yesler Park Community Center. Parks will develop the park using 2008 Parks and Green Spaces levy funding. Yesler Terrace is being redeveloped from a low income housing development to a combination of low income housing, market rate housing, offices and community spaces. All the existing housing will be demolished and a variety of housing and building types will be built. The street grid will be partially restored.
