West Seattle park updates: Delridge Skatepark, Fairmount Playground

On the heels of our Myrtle Reservoir Park update (miss that story? see it here), we have two more quick updates on Seattle Parks projects in West Seattle: First, Delridge Skatepark (above: Grindline‘s final design) is going out to bid on September 15th (here’s the bid advertisement, courtesy of SeattleSkateparks.org) and should break ground in October, according to project manager Kelly Davidson. She also shares the news that the new play equipment for Fairmount Playground is scheduled to be installed next Tuesday. (The “old” merry-go-round is scheduled to be re-installed, according to our last update from when work began two months ago.)

    I remember when the playground with the tubes slides were being built on the school property (Fairmount Park) near the blacktop back in the 88-90s? ..but I always thought they needed to update the area by the field. =]

    This looks amazing can’t wait to try it out. Thanks Virginia for not giving up on us here in West Seattle and sticking with all the long drawn out and at times nasty meetings.

    Since the city can’t afford to put water in the wading pools any more, maybe they can turn all those into skate parks! Non-summer weather notwithstanding, it’s crazy we can’t even afford WATER!!

    They need to put more rails in it looks like, so when it snows u can use a bungie rope to propell yourself on the rails when snowboardin/skiin!!

    Love parks – this looks like quite a nice design! I may need to buy a skateboard, after about a 25-year lay off! :)

Sorry, comment time is over.
