Seattle Parks and Recreation is hosting a public meeting Wednesday, April 27, from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm to provide information about the improvements at Walt Hundley Playfield, located in the High Point neighborhood. The meeting will be at the Southwest Branch library, 9010 35th Ave SW.
The renovation includes replacement of the existing surface with synthetic turf to provide year round adult soccer and improved accessibility. City Council approved $1 million from the Parks and Green Spaces Levy for planning, design and construction.
Construction is anticipated to commence at the beginning of summer with completion in early fall.
Seattle voters passed the Parks and Green Spaces Levy by an impressive 59% vote in November 2008. The new $146 million Levy provides for development funding for projects such as improved playfields, reservoir lid parks, renovated playgrounds, community gardens, and safety upgrades at city owned cultural facilities.
