B. F. Day Playground Play Area Renovation

Updated: December 14, 2021

Winter 2021/2022

Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) has put this project on hold as we address community concerns around the construction. This will delay the project, however, we still hope to have the play area open in summer 2022.

We awarded the construction contract to LW Sundstrom and they mobilized on site in late November 2021.

You may view the final plans here.

This play area renovation project will replace the play equipment and improve the adjacent picnic area, including replacing the drinking fountain and making accessibility improvements in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and national safety standards. The play equipment reflects a "nature play" theme and includes slides, swings, and balancing equipment.
