About

Beacon Hill Playfield, a neighborhood park next to Beacon Hill Elementary School, features ADA-accessible basketball hoops and a children's play area, picnic tables, accessible restrooms, a soccer and softball field, accessible tennis courts and an accessible wading pool.

M.H. Young, who developed a street car line to Beacon Hill in 1895, suggested the name for the hill--and thus the playground--after the Beacon Hill of his native Boston, Massachusetts. The south half of the playfield site had been a waterworks, the Spring Hill Water Company, from 1881 to 1907. Its reservoir was served by a pump station on Lake Washington at Colman Park. Abandoned in 1912, the site was converted to a playfield in 1926.
