West Seattle Soccer Club to inaugurate new Walt Hundley Playfield turf

A little more than a year after the field got its new name – honoring Seattle’s first African-American Superintendent of ParksWalt Hundley Playfield has its new turf. The completion of the $1 million Parks and Green Spaces Levy-funded renovation has just been announced, and the Seattle Parks news release says that West Seattle Soccer Club will officially kick things off with a day full of games this Saturday. The city announcement quotes WSSC board member Tim McMonigle as saying “this will be one of the very few synthetic lined U-10 and U-11 surfaces in the Puget Sound area.” The field (south of High Point Community Center) also has football and Ultimate Frisbee reference markings. It’s the third West Seattle playfield to get new turf in less than two years, after Hiawatha and Delridge.

    The WSSC wishes to thank and acknowledge Wyatt’s Jewelers for their generous donation of $5,000.00 to provide (6) professional 6′ x 18′ goals for this field. Besides supporting sanctioned play for our young players, the smaller goals and field markings make the Walt Hundley field ideal for small-sided games, training, and unstructured play for all ages. Please visit Wyatt’s Jewelers to thank them and support businesses that support our community! We also want to thank Project Manager, Ted Holden, Friends of Athletic Fields, the Levy Oversight Committee, and Seattle Parks for helping us bring this dream field to life! — Bill Fry, WSSC President
