Seattle Parks and Recreation invites the community to learn about proposed improvements scheduled for Ballard Playfield. Please join us on Monday, June 11, 2018 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Ave. NW. Ballard Playfield is well used by the community, especially by youth leagues, and this improvement project will help us meet our city’s growing demand for recreational facilities.
The project includes installing two baseball synthetic turf infields, replacing the field lighting system, improving access to meet the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other field enhancements. Ballard Playfield is located at 2644 NW 60th St.
Seattle Parks and Recreation is investing in state-of-the-art synthetic turf systems that provide safe, playable and durable fields. Additionally, we are investing in high quality energy-efficient field lighting which minimizes spill light and glare off the field while providing recreation light on the field.

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.
