Final stage of Hiawatha Playfield work is under way today

The fences are going up around the track at Hiawatha Playfield today, as the Parks Department had warned field users would happen – this is so the last phase of the Hiawatha renovations, the rubberized track, can be installed. Project manager Garrett Farrell says the contractor has until July 23rd to finish the job, so the track and field are scheduled to be off-limits for the next few weeks. (Summer events at Hiawatha including the July 16 Family Fun Fest and West Seattle Hi-Yu Junior Court Coronation, the July 17-18 Mediterranean Fantasy Fest, and the July 20th Hi-Yu Concert in the Park – with West Seattle Volunteer Recognition Award winners honored! – are on the other side of the community center.)

    Great news. Was jogging there today and thought that might be the reason for the fences.

    Can’t wait for the rubberized track – now if those darn people with dogs would just follow the RULES and stay off!

    Too bad they couldn’t build a real baseball facility for the high school team
