Seattle Parks and Recreation needs community input on Lakeridge Playground Improvement Project

Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) is hosting an Open House for the Lakeridge Playground on Wednesday, March 6, 2019 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Rainier Beach Community Center and Pool, 8825 Rainier Ave. S. This project will make needed playground and playfield renovations including new play equipment, new field grass turf, irrigation and drainage renovation, court resurfacing, retaining wall study, and access improvements to meet ADA standards. Lakeridge Playground is located in southeast Seattle at 10145 Rainier Ave. S.

An important element in delivering a successful project is community involvement and active participation in the design process.  We look forward to meeting you at the Open House and gathering input on the project.  Additionally, we encourage the community to participate in this survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LakeridgePlaygroundRenovation.

This project is funded by the Seattle Park District and the King County Parks Levy.  SPR anticipates design for this project to be complete and put out to public bid by the end of 2019, with construction slated for 2020.
