Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community for input on the Hutchinson Playground Renovation

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to help shape the future design of the Hutchinson Playground. Please join us on August 3, 2023, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Hutchinson Playground, 59th Ave S & S Norfolk St, 98118.

During the event we will host a presentation starting at 5:30 p.m. for the design team to share results from the community survey, a site analysis, potential play area styles and park design options. We will also be gathering input on how the existing park works for you as well as, what improvements you would like to see. Rec N’ Streets will be providing fun games for all, including pickleball. It will be a fun evening with food and refreshments.

Additionally, the design team invites the community to participate in a short survey that will inform the future design. Please visit:
