Ballard Playfield Lighting Project Begins

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is happy to announce we awarded the construction contract to Service Electric Co., Inc. for the lighting replacement project at Ballard Playground Playfield adjacent to the Ballard Community Center at 2644 NW 60th St.  Construction begins the week of September 6 and will be completed in early 2022. The playfield will be closed during construction.

SPR is invested in installing the highest quality energy-efficient field lighting which minimizes spill light and glare off the field while providing performance recreation light.

A large percentage of the primary improvement project, which included new synthetic turf infield and subsurface field restoration, improving accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards, along with field light poles and light replacement, was placed on hold due to COVID-19.  For safety and energy efficiency, SPR is moving the lighting replacement portion of this project forward.
