Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) has announced that Green Tech Excavation will handle the addition to Greenwood Park, located between 87th and 89th on Fremont Ave N. The work began on September 30th and will be completed in early 2020.
SPR purchased the 0.1-acre site at 8805 Fremont Ave. N in 2013 to provide more open space for the growing neighborhood and to expand the existing Greenwood Park. Funding for this park project is provided by the Seattle Park District, approved by voters in 2014.
The new parcel, surrounded by Greenwood Park, reflects input from the community and has a “game” theme with a ping pong table, corn hole, 4-square, hopscotch, and tether ball. The sport court will be striped for pickleball and will remain open during construction. The project also features a wood arbor connection to the pea patch, a hillside slide into the play area, a picnic area with BBQ, and skate elements. The project incorporates accessibility features in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
