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.
