Puget Ridge playground overhaul: Here’s the plan

This 21-year-old playground on Puget Ridge, known as the “tot lot,” is getting an overhaul. Community members were invited to stop by this week for a look at the plan.

It’s mostly keeping the same footprint:

But the surface will be leveled so it’s accessible to more users; a trail around the playground is getting some attention too, and of course the play equipment will be replaced. A forest theme was most popular with participants in a previous meeting, so that’s the type of equipment that’ll be provided – some examples were shown:

Among those who stopped by in last Wednesday afternoon’s sunshine to find out about the plan were some present and future users, who even had their own version of the public meeting staple known as a sign-in sheet:

Parks staffers say they expect to start work this fall. If you have any last-minute comments but couldn’t get to the meeting, libby.hudson@seattle.gov is who to contact.

    This is one of the few playgrounds that are fully surrounded by a chain link fence.  I assume this is due to the small size, triangular shape abutted by 2 sidewalk free roads.  The fencing has also made it a choice for dog owners to use for an off-leash destination despite signage at the gate banning dogs in children’s  playground.

Sorry, comment time is over.
