Park Renovation Design Review Tuesday

Park RenovSeattle Parks and Recreation, in partnership with Victory Heights Cooperative Preschool and Victory Heights Community Council, invite the community to review the schematic design and provide input on play equipment for the renovation of Victory Heights Playground play area. The meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2016 will be held at the co-op preschool building in Victory Heights Park as part of the Victory Heights Community Council meeting that evening. Seattle Parks and Recreation’s in-house landscape architect and project manager will host an Open House from 6 – 7 p.m. to provide an update on the project and gather community input on play equipment. The formal presentation will be made between 7 – 8 p.m. during the Victory Heights Community Council meeting.

This project will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements and improve other features at the park. The scope of this project provides improvements which will bring the play area into compliance with current play area safety standards and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) access. The play area is located adjacent to the preschool.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for this play area renovation.  Approved by voters in 2014, the Seattle Park District provides more than $47 million a year in long-term funding for Seattle Parks and Recreation including maintenance of parklands and facilities, operation of community centers and recreation programs, and development of new neighborhood parks on previously acquired sites.

If you have additional questions about the project or would like to request accommodations or need an interpreter please contact Katie Bang at katie.bang@seattle.gov or 206-684-9286.

We hope to see you there on Tuesday! Remember, the chairs at the pre-school are designed for small children, bring your own for better comfort.
