Seattle Parks and Recreation invites community to review design and play equipment at final meeting for the renovation of Lincoln Park south play area

We need your input on the renovation design for the south play area in Lincoln Park.

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to the final meeting for this renovation project on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at The Kenney, 7125 Fauntleroy Way SW. Please join SPR’s Planner, Project Manager, and Sr. Landscape Architect to review schematic designs and provide additional input on play equipment. Community members are encouraged to bring their children to participate in the meeting. Light snacks and activities will be available.

This project will replace play equipment, provide access for people with disabilities, and improve safety and other features at the south play area in Lincoln Park, 8011 Fauntleroy Way SW.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey and attended our first meeting in November 2017. We heard from 295 community members and the information we gathered influenced the renovation designs. We anticipate construction for this project to begin in the summer and be completed by late 2018.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding that supports SPR’s maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

Thank you to The Kenney for their support of this meeting. For more information on the project please visit http://www.seattle.gov/parks/about-us/current-projects/loyal-heights-play-area-renovation.
