Seattle Parks and Recreation plans renovation for Lincoln Park north play area

Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to review the schematic design and provide input for the north play area renovation project in Lincoln Park on Tuesday, February 2, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. at Gatewood Elementary, 4320 SW Myrtle St. Seattle Parks and Recreation’s in-house landscape architect and project manager will present the preferred design and gather input on play equipment options for the new play area.

This project, located in the north part of the park, will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements and improve other features at the park. Lincoln Park is located in West Seattle at 8011 Fauntleroy Way SW.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this renovation. Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites. 2016 is the first full year of implementation and will include funding to tackle the $267-million major maintenance backlog; and will fund the improvement and rehabilitation of community centers; preservation of urban forests; major maintenance at the Aquarium and Zoo; day-to-day maintenance of parks and facilities; more recreation opportunities for people from underserved communities, programs for young people, people with disabilities, and older adults; development of new parks; and acquisition of new park land.
