Renovated Bitter Lake Play Area Opens

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is happy to announce the renovated Bitter Lake play area is open!

The new play area provides many opportunities for children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12 to explore. Sliding, spinning, zip-lining and climbing on new colorful play equipment are a few of the play options at the renovated Bitter Lake play area. In addition, the renovation made safety and accessibility improvements to meet the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As part of the project new picnic tables and site furnishings were included.

“Seattle Parks and Recreation’s $2.5 million investment delivers a renovated play area, universal accessible restroom facility, and new tennis court light poles for the thriving and diverse Bitter Lake neighborhood,” said AP Diaz, Seattle Parks and Recreation Superintendent. “This play area located adjacent to the community center and wading pool provides a great gathering and community space for all.”

The play area opened on May 24th. SPR anticipates the restroom and remainder of electrical work for the tennis court lights will be completed by mid-July, in time for a community ribbon cutting celebration.  

Bitter Lake Park is located in northwest Seattle at 13035 Linden Ave. N. Please watch the website to learn more about the event and come celebrate with the Bitter Lake community!
