Community invited to participate in design review at final meeting for Soundview Playfield renovation

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) invites the community to a public Open House for the renovation of Soundview Playfield on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Join SPR’s staff and BRCA Design consultants at Loyal Heights Community Center, 2101 NW 77th St., to provide comments on the final design for Soundview Playfield renovation.

The proposed project for the Soundview Playfield, 1590 NW 90th St., will include installation of synthetic field surfacing, the addition of lighting, access improvements that meet the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other site enhancements.

SPR is investing in a state-of-the-art synthetic turf system that provides safe, playable, and durable fields. Additionally, we are investing in high quality energy-efficient field lighting which minimizes spill light and glare while providing recreation light on the field. Synthetic turf and lighting improvements will be prioritized on the lower field, and we anticipate providing additional improvements for the upper field as the budget allows. These upgrades will also address recreational demands and repair field drainage issues.

Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District. Approved by Seattle voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding to Seattle Parks and Recreation for maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

For questions about the project or if you need an interpreter or accommodations please contact Karimah Cooper Edwards, Seattle Parks and Recreation, at 206-233-0063 or Karimah.edwards@seattle.gov.
