New comfort station to be installed at Fairmount Playfield

Seattle Parks and Recreation is replacing the comfort station at Fairmount Playfield. Fairmount Playfield is located at 5400 Fauntleroy Way SW, in West Seattle. The new comfort station will meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards and provide upgraded amenities.

Seattle Parks will demolish the existing comfort station in late September 2014. Parks is providing two porta-potties during the closure. The new comfort station will be installed and opened in February 2015. Parks will work to minimize construction impacts that may include truck traffic and construction noise.

The 2008 Parks and Green Spaces levy allocates $200,000 for planning, design and construction. The Oversight Committee recommended levy inflation funding be allocated to much needed major maintenance projects such as this replacement.
