Lakewood Playground Park Play Area Renovation

Updated: October 14, 2021

Fall 2021

Thank you to everyone who participated in the public process for the Lakewood Playground. The play area is open and the renovation project is substantially complete. Areas around the new benches are fenced off until the turf has established. The play area renovation improves access from multiple directions, provides new wood chip surfacing throughout the play area, and added several benches on the west side of the pathway to provide viewing to both the play area and the playfield. The new play equipment meets current safety and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The castle motif community tiled wall at the park remains.

Project Description

This project will update the play area with new play equipment that meets current safety standards. The new equipment will improve access to the play area in conformance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards.

During construction the contractor will need to close the play area and possibly the playfield if required. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the park.
