E. C. Hughes Playground Renovation

Community encouraged to provide input on design

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to participate in the E. C. Hughes Playground renovation project on Thursday, April 19, 2018 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Please join the project planner and landscape architect at Southwest Teen Life Center, 2801 SW Thistle St.

SPR is hosting two meetings to inform you about the project and gather your input. The first meeting at the Southwest Teen Life Center will be an opportunity to learn about the project and provide input on play equipment and play area design. The second meeting will be held at the park June 13. It will be an opportunity to review the preferred design and provide input.

E.C. Hughes Playground is located in West Seattle at 2803 SW Holden St. The play area renovation project will update aging equipment with play structures accessible to children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12. The intent is to enhance the safety and play area accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Please note that the wading pool at the park is not part of this playground renovation project.

We need your input! Please participate in the survey:
