If you’ve visited the Ballard Playfield on NW 60th St. next to the community center recently, you know it could use an upgrade.
The city has set aside $1.6 million to refurbish the two baseball fields, and you’re invited to a meeting on Monday evening to hear the details.
The plan is to install “state of the art synthetic turf systems” and energy-efficient field lighting “which minimizes spill light and glare off the field.” The project will also bring the facility up to code with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
All this work will result in closing the Playfield during construction, which is planned for next year.
Seattle Parks and Recreation will hold a community meeting on Monday, June 11 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Ave. NW. to talk about the project.
