4TH OF JULY: ‘Lights on’ for two nights at four West Seattle fields

Seattle Parks has announced it’ll turn the lights on Tuesday (July 3rd) and Wednesday (July 4th) at ballfields around the city in hopes of preventing damage from fireworks use. Four West Seattle fields are on the list for having the lights on 8 pm-11 pm both nights:

Delridge Playfield, 4458 Delridge Way SW
Hiawatha Playfield, 2700 California Ave. SW
Walt Hundley Playfield, 6920 34th Avenue SW
West Seattle Stadium, 4432 35th Ave. SW

Parks’ announcement adds that, “The fields will be monitored by security from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m.”

    What about the field across from Sealth Highschool?.

      That’s owned by Seattle Public Schools. I’m asking them, though. It’s in the middle of a renovation project, as we’ve reported a few times.

    This is great, wish they could keep the lights on until even later, like 2-3am… that’s usually when its the worst.

      Yes, keep them on later!

    Hallelujah. If only they could do that for the Delridge & Genesee wading pool and skatepark.

    Yes, SW Athletic Complex should turn them on too. Last year a firework started a fire in the little group of trees in front of the SW Pool parking lot, and the lot itself was littered with spent fireworks after the 4th.

    Wow creative thinking with the lights on!  Hopefully a successful strategy.

    Please Please Please have security or something at the Delridge Community Center/Skatepark/wading pool.  That area has massively huge firework booms ALL NIGHT LONG.  Last year my daughter was 8 weeks old at that time and it REALLY sucked having those huge booms wake her up (I’m on 23rd Ave)

    Firecrackers going off in my neighborhood right now.
