Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a community meeting to review the design for the Rainier Playfield Play Area and gather final public input. The meeting will be Thursday, September 16, 2010 from 6:30 – 8 p.m. at the Rainier Community Center, 4600 38th Ave. S.
This renovation project, identified in the 2008 Parks and Green Spaces Levy, will replace the existing play equipment and improve site conditions related to the play area. One of our design goals is to move all the play equipment closer together and eliminate the conflict between vehicle traffic within the park and the play area. The design incorporates feedback provided from the community at the first meeting in May 2010. Construction is planned for 2011.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008. The $146 million Levy provides acquisition funding for new neighborhood parks and green spaces and development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
