Spring 2024

We appreciate your patience as this project starts back up. Please watch this site for updates on the project and the project’s design.  

In the summer of 2020, the City of Seattle turned its focus to essential functions to address the pandemic and economic crisis, which required a significant reprioritization of resources. Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) suspended many capital projects including the renovation of the Madrona Park Beach Play Area. In September 2022, the Seattle City Council, acting in their role as Seattle Park District Board, passed a new six-year funding plan for the 2023-2028 Park District cycle which includes funding for this project and many more. SPR staff put together a plan for the projects in this six-year funding plan using several criteria, including equity, and creating a plan for implementation.
