Happening now: Roxhill Castle playground construction, day 2

November 3, 2012 at 12:44 pm | In How to help, West Seattle news, West Seattle parks | 3 Comments

Thanks to Joe Szilagyi for sending video and photos showing what’s happening today at the Roxhill Castle volunteer-powered construction site at Roxhill Park in Westwood. It’s day 2 of the project – with volunteers working all day (in shifts), rain or shine, for five days, to put up the play structure that replaced its also-community-built predecessor. Still lots of opportunities for YOU to help – this page on the Roxhill Castle website explains how, or just drop by the park (29th SW at Barton) and get going.

5:35 PM UPDATE: Just received photos from Lisa Stencel, who says, “It’s looking great!” as day 2 of (projected) 5 wraps up:

Every volunteer makes a difference!

In case you weren’t keeping track – a skatespot is being built right next to the Roxhill playground (though that one is NOT a volunteer operation), so this is going to be a recreation hotspot more than ever before.


  1. So many hard working individuals there…you all are so awesome!

  2. An amazing day! A personal thank you to EVERYONE who came and donated. It’s not just a playground that we are building – we are building Community. There is still a lot to be done! 8am – 8pm tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday. Please come. It’ll make your heart feel good :)
