Fall 2022

In early 2023, Seattle Parks and Recreation will conduct detailed analysis and local engagement around the top candidates for dedicated pickleball sites that were identified in the 2021-2022 Outdoor Pickleball Study (view the summary report here).
These are:

  • North: Bitter Lake Reservoir Open Space and Warren G. Magnuson Park 
  • South: Genesee Park, Georgetown Playfield, and Hiawatha Playfield

The Outdoor Pickleball Study identified many opportunities and challenges to each of the sites. The scope of the of this next step will include analyses of:

  • Site issues such as parking, noise, traffic, and access
  • Constructability, meaning identifying issues about how sites could be constructed relative to costs
  • Determining final 1-2 candidate sites for future development
