Dearborn Play Area Improvement Project Begins Construction

Seattle Parks and Recreation is happy to announce the beginning of construction for Dearborn Play Area. W.S. Contractors, LLC, the contractor on the project, will mobilize onsite on Tuesday, August 22 and close the play area as they begin construction. We anticipate the play area will open in spring 2024 when the improvement project is complete.

The project is focused on installing new play equipment and improving access to the play area. The project has a forest theme with new ‘Nature Play’ play equipment, swings, picnic tables, plus improved accessibility. This design is based on the feedback we heard from our community meeting and two surveys.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the public process and thank you for your support and cooperation during construction. Dearborn Park is located at 2919 S Brandon St. on Beacon Hill just north of the Dearborn Park Elementary School and east of Martin Luther King Jr. Way S.
