About

Washington Park Playfield is located in the Washington Park Arboretum. It has fields for soccer, baseball,  and softball and includes lighting and bleachers.

Washington Park Playfield Synthetic Turf Replacement

Seattle Parks and Recreation awarded the construction contract for this project to Coast to Coast Turf, Inc. They will mobilize on site the week of July 25. During construction the playfield will be closed, however, the contractor will work to keep the play area and rest rooms open to the public.

This project will replace aging synthetic turf at Washington Park Playfield. This will include the removal of the old ‘worn out’ synthetic turf and addressing accessibility issues at the field. 2022 synthetic turf systems will be installed for recreational play. Field markings will include soccer, ultimate Frisbee and baseball/softball. We anticipate the project will be completed in the fall of 2022.

Budget

Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) funds this project - CIP Budget: $1.9 million.

Project Schedule

Bidding: Spring 2022
Construction: Mid July - Late September 2022
Anticipated Completion: Fall 2022

Anticipated Impact

During construction the contractor will need to close the playfield and adjacent batting cages. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impacts to Park users and the community.
