If you’re not able to make it to one of the engagement opportunities or have more ideas to share, we’d love to hear from you! Please share your input and participate in our project kick-off survey:  

Tucked away on the southeastern hillside of Queen Anne, Ward Springs Park provides the Lower Queen Anne community with space for kiddos to play alongside views of the Seattle skyline. Previously the site where all of Queen Anne’s water was provided through, a historical pump house still stands in Ward Springs Park as a facility available for seasonal rentals and as a relic of the neighborhood’s past. A meandering path with bench seating completes this neighborhood park amenity. 

The Ward Springs Play Area Renovation Project will replace the existing play equipment with new equipment that meets current safety and accessibility standards. All improvements will be compliant with the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
