Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community to an Open House for High Point Community Center play area renovation project

Other City departments will also be in attendance to provide community updates and services

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to provide input on the High Point Community Center play area renovation project on Saturday, April 8, 2017 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the HighDSCN0461 Point Community Center, 6920 34th Ave. SW. Weather permitting, the event will be held outside near the play area. The landscape architect, project planner and project manager will provide information on the renovation project and gather community input on play features and amenities. The play area is south of the community center near the tennis courts.

This is an all-ages event with light snacks and children’s activities. We encourage all to attend and participate by providing input on the best play area design option for the High Point neighborhood.

This project will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements, and improve safety and other features at the park.

The Seattle Park District provided the funding for this play area improvement project. Approved by Seattle 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.

Translated meeting notices and additional information can be found here: If you have questions about the project, or if you would like to request accommodations or need an interpreter, please contact Karimah Edwards, Seattle Parks and Recreation at 206-233-0063 or
