Roxhill Skatespot, Playground construction to start next week

September 5, 2012 at 2:47 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle parks | 4 Comments

The city has announced that the Roxhill Park play area will close temporarily starting next Monday – because that’s when Grindline will start work on the skatespot and playground projects there. As reported here last month, West Seattle-headquartered Grindline was the apparent winner in the second round of bidding, and the city says it has since awarded the West Seattle firm the contracts for both the Roxhill and Judson (not in WS) projects. As decided during the design process, Leathers and Associates is providing the components for the new play area, which will be community built, to be done in late November, according to Seattle Parks.

  1. Great news that they skate spot will be right there. Wish Seattle had gotten with it 10 years ago, would have saved a lot of trips to Burien over the years.

  4. wow. awesome. local builder is so much better, more accountability, care, pride, everything. but what the heck was that one line that California Skateparks didn’t fill out on the bid form that tipped the entire thing to Grindline’s favor?
