Cal Anderson Play Area Renovation

Updated: August 25, 2022

Summer 2022

To increase project efficiency, this project was bundled with two other play areas (West Arboretum Tot Lot and Soundview Terrace) and put out to bid. Bid opening occurred in late August and we are analyzing the bids with the goal of awarding the construction contract for all three projects. Once the contract is awarded a more specific construction timeframe will be created.

This project will replace the aging play equipment and repair/replace the play area surfacing. The new play equipment will meet current national safety standards and assure accessibility to children of all abilities, ages 2-5 and 5-12. Access to the play area will be improved, if needed, to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

During construction the contractor will need to close the play area. Seattle Parks and Recreation and the contractor hired for the project will work to minimize impact to the neighborhood.
