E. C. Hughes Playground Renovation

Community invited to review preferred design

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to participate in the E. C. Hughes Playground renovation project on Wednesday, June 13, 2018 from 1 to 3 p.m. Please join the project team in the park at 2805 SW Holden St. to review the preferred design and provide input.

SPR is hosting this final meeting to discuss the renovation project and gather your input. 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 is not part of this project.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the play area survey and attended the first meeting in April 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 to Seattle Parks and Recreation for maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.
