Two Ballard play areas set to close for renovation

Gilman Playground (923 NW 54th St) and Webster Park (3025 NW 68th St) play areas are scheduled to close beginning Monday, September 5, for approximately four months for renovation.

During construction, the Gilman Playground basketball court and surrounding area will be closed; however, the comfort station, east/west walkway and associated stairs and sports fields will remain open. At Webster Park the play area and basketball court will be closed for the duration of construction.

Both play area renovation projects will replace the play equipment, provide access improvements and install new park furnishings. Thank you to everyone who attended the public meetings and provided input on the improvements.

The Seattle Park District provides the funding for these play area improvement projects.
