FOLLOWUP: Delridge Playfield almost ready to reopen

(WSB photo, Sunday)

If you’ve noticed that the turf-replacement project at Delridge Playfield looks almost done … that’s because it is, Seattle Parks confirms. We asked about its status, and a Parks spokesperson responded that the work will be complete on Friday (October 6th) and the field will open to users the next day (Saturday, October 7th). The project started three months ago – that’s less time than the four-month estimate. The contractor for the project is Ohno-Touchdown JV. The Delridge field is reopening one month after Hiawatha Playfield, which also has new turf.

    That’s great news! Can’t wait to get back on that field.    Will all the sidewalks be completed too?  There’s a sidewalk/ ramp that goes from the parking lot up to the fields (plus the landing where it connects to the main street sidewalk) that has been under construction the last few weeks, as well.

      Well based on my guess-timate, the answer is no, the sidewalks won’t be completed by tomorrow, like the fields.  They were prepping the sub-grade today; not sure when they will pour the concrete. Friday? next week?

Sorry, comment time is over.
