Seattle Parks and Recreation, in partnership with Victory Heights Cooperative Preschool and Victory Heights Community Council, invite the community to review the schematic design and provide input on play equipment for the renovation of Victory Heights Playground play area. The meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016 will be held at the Preschool 1737 NE 106th St. Seattle Parks and Recreation’s in-house landscape architect and project manager will host an Open House from 6 – 7 p.m. to provide an update on the project and gather community input on play equipment. A formal presentation will be made between 7 – 8 p.m. at the Victory Heights Community Council meeting also at the preschool location, 1737 NE 106th St.
This project will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements and improve other features at the park. The scope of this project provides improvements which will bring the play area into compliance with current play area safety standards and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access. The play area is located adjacent to the preschool.
The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this play area renovation. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites. 2016 is the first full year of implementation and will include funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog; and will fund the improvement and rehabilitation of community centers; preservation of the urban forest; major maintenance at the Aquarium and Zoo; day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities; more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, programs for young people, people with disabilities, and older adults; development of new parks; and acquisition of new park land.
