Play Area



This little neighborhood park was built in 1983. In 2021, Seattle Parks and Recreation made safety improvements to the park that include safety upgrades at the entrance and exit to the slope slide and reduced potential hazards around the park. We added two new seats near the entrance to the slope slide and replaced the bench in the upper plaza. We also added a planter in the upper plaza and natural play elements in the sand pit. Over the years most play equipment has been removed because it was dated and unsafe. The park is located on a steep slope within designated Environmental Critical Areas, including designated Wildlife Habitat, and is part of the SW Queen Anne Greenbelt. A paved pathway provides access to a staircase through the greenbelt that connects the neighborhood to 13th Avenue West.
