Seattle Parks and Recreation (Parks) is undertaking a major renovation
for the play area at Meadowbrook Playfield. The Meadowbrook Play
Area project is a Capital Improvements Program project, funded through
Parks Major Maintenance funds.
A total of $386,000 is available from Parks Department sources for
planning, design and construction of play area renovation work.
Additional funds are being sought from the Department of Neighborhoods
through the Neighborhood Matching Fund (NMF). NMF funds could potentially
add $150,000 to the project.
CIP Statement: This project renovates the outdated play area at
Meadowbrook Playfield with new play equipment, safety surfacing,
concrete curb, drainage, and accessible pathway to the comfort station
and parking. These improvements provide a play area that meets current
guidelines for safety clearances and accessibility.
Meadowbrook Playfield is an 18.5 acre park. The complex includes
the Meadowbrook Community Center and Pool, ball fields, tennis courts,
play area, and other open space. The park land is adjacent to Thornton
Creek and Nathan Hale High School. The play area site is located
on Seattle School District property north of ball field #2 and east
of the parking lot.
The play area will provide safe and enjoyable play experiences for
children and universal access for people of all ages. The completed
project will establish a strong sense of connection and unity between
Parks components at the Meadowbrook complex.
