Lawton Park complete

November 28th, 2010 · 16 Comments

The new Lawton Park play area at 3843 26th Ave. West is now open.   

The renovation project, identified in the Parks and Green Spaces Levy provided new play equipment for children ages 2-12, site improvements to enhance safety and paving of east and west pathways to improve access by all users.  Low fencing will remain in place near the play area to allow the grass to establish.


Seattle Parks and Recreation in-house landscape architects incorporated ideas collected at two public meetings into the final design. 


Seattle voters passed the $146 million Parks and Green Spaces Levy by a 59% vote in November 2008.

Thanks to Steven Smalley for the photos!

    Great… I live along 26th and am very much looking forward to the sounds of “Marco Polo” invading my bedroom.

    Do parents understand how many carbon emissions are wasted on children. Just say no to kids.

    We have to save this planet.

  • BO

    Monica! Unveil yo name, For if it isn’t LUCIFER!

    Girl, YOU disgust me! How could you put a carbon emission over a child! Have you never conceived a human into this world ! ARE YOU incapable of LOVE in any form! MY GOD , GIRL!

    I have 10 babies ( 3 baby moma’s and 1 wife, all different states , mostly east coast). Every one is a blessing with their little mouths and tiny fingers! I look into their eyes and I see pure love. When’s the last time you looked into the eyes off a locally grown potato and seen PURE LOVE! NEVER! Cause it has the same dumb eye as a potato that was shipped here from Ireland.

    This carbon footprint, locally grown, emission testing food has gone too far! I’m gonna call up all my momma’s and tell them to make sure that our kids eat food trucked and shipped from china, Europe, Iceland, and the North Pole! I’ll tell them to feed them the ones that went to the wrong address and had to be reshipped. OHHH the taste of Carbon Emissions! Feed me tummy Cargo ships! FEED MY TUMMY cargo planes, and Semi trucks! I won’t be protesting you no mo!

    You’ve got my blood boiling on that one Monica!

    Monica and Bo. I hope you are both kidding! Monica, save the planet for what? If there are no kids then what is the point? Bo, 3 baby mommas? Just sad for the babies to not have their daddy.
    I really hope you are both just pulling my leg.

    Right on, Monica: if kids are so smart, how come they can’t even buy beer?

    You got some great ideas there. I did a search on the issue and learnt most peoples will agree with your blog. They originally formed in the late 1950s, went through a couple of personnel changes, and eventually settled upon the famous quartet of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in 1962.

    You made good ideas here. I done a research on the topic and learnt nearly all peoples will agree with your blog. I knew the first months of his life would be spent in the hospital, which is not the normal beginning to life we all expect our children will have.
