Ward Springs Park: 925 4th Ave N, 98109


Seattle Parks District Major Maintenance provides $430,000 for planning, design, construction.


Planning: Fall 2023 - Winter 2024
Design: Spring - Summer 2024
Construction: Spring 2025

Project Description

This project will replace the existing play equipment with new equipment that meets current safety and accessibility standards. All improvements will be compliant with the standards from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 
During construction, the contractor will need to close the play area portion of the park. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood. Thank you for your understanding as we all work towards a new play area for children of all ages and abilities!
