Wallingford Playfield Play Area project begins

Play Area Closes November 6, 2018

The Wallingford Playfield play area will close on Tuesday, November 6 for renovation and improvement. Construction fencing will be installed and demolition of the existing equipment that has been compromised because of termites will be removed. We anticipate opening the renovated play area in early 2019 after new play equipment is installed and improvements made. The new play equipment will meet current safety standards, and ensure accessibility to all children ages 2 – 12 in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Wallingford Play Area is located at the northeast corner of Wallingford Playfield, 4219 Wallingford Ave. N. Thank you to everyone who participated in the public process for this improvement project.

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.
