Dear Friends of Dahl Playfield,
Many of you are wondering what is happening with the park renovation. Our design is essentially the same, our construction schedule has changed a bit. Here is the latest schedule as revised:
Public Art Fundraising Complete
Thanks to generous donations from the City of Seattle, Paul G Allen Foundation, Starbucks Coffee, U.S. Bancorp Foundation, and individual donors, we were able to meet our fundraising goals toward the commission and installation of John Hoge’s custom stone work entitled “Boulder Wash.” We look forward to celebrating this exciting addition to the park later this year.
Ball Field Renovations
We are currently working with Parks to determine the most effective course of action to complete planned renovations of the ball fields. We hope to have a more detailed construction timeline later this fall.
Children’s Play Area Renovation
The children’s play equipment has been purchased and delivered to a Parks warehouse. We will re-advertise the construction contract in October for a winter build out. Volunteer play equipment installation dates/times will be dependent upon the contractor’s schedule. We will announce those opportunities once construction has actually begun.
