New Play Structure at Urban Triangle Park Opens!

Seattle Parks and Recreation(SPR) is happy to announce the new play structure at Urban Triangle Park, 2100 Westlake Ave. in the South Lake Union neighborhood is open! An official ribbon cutting celebration with the community will be held next month.

The new play structure offers opportunities for climbing and exploring. This new custom play structure designed by Site Workshop references historical neighborhood structures, “spite mounds” on which sat homes of people protesting the Denny Hill Regrade in the early 1900s.

This park opened in 2019 and is the first SPR property to have a cafe integrated into the design with direct access to the park. The design includes an open lawn, seating edge, lighting, ADA access, places for vendors, landscaping, and the new central play structure.

Additionally, public artwork Escape Destinations is located in the southwest corner of the park. The artwork created by Janet Zweig was commissioned with funding from SPR’s 1% for Art funds, consists of two signs that employ a bus-blind device to scroll through lighted names of fictional destinations found in literature, games, film, television and comics from the eighth century BC to 2019. The yellow sign displays place names from works made for children; the blue sign displays place names from works made for adults. Changing every day, the piece regularly gives the park a new name. Some may be instantly recognizable, while others may inspire viewers to search and discover something new.
