Good news and not-so-good news for everyone looking forward to the Highland Park Spraypark, to be built on the current site of the Highland Park wading pool, which is in its fourth season of closure: The good news, according to Seattle Parks project manager Kelly Goold, is that the King County Health permit for construction/operation was finalized just yesterday – and that means construction is a go. But now, they have to get the $635,000-budgeted project out to bid. Goold says that process is likely to start next Wednesday, with a three-week window for bidding, meaning a contractor won’t be chosen before mid-August, and construction would start in the fall. He says that’s perhaps just as well, since use of the play area would be dramatically curtailed by construction operations right at the heart of summer season, so bottom line, looks like the spraypark won’t open till next year. (The rendering above shows the final design as presented to the community at a Highland Park Action Committee meeting this past March [WSB coverage here].)
