For your viewing pleasure, here’s the latest rendering of the design for playfield improvements! (I think those are cats playing soccer.)
It’s pretty exciting to see the varied spaces students will be able to enjoy, with options for active, nature-based, and imaginative play in all weather.
With a solid base of funding from the City of Seattle’s Neighborhood Matching Fund (see previous post here) to build the bones of the design, we’ll need more dollars to complete the work and add the trees, boulders, logs, and ‘gator sculpture (in the upper left hand corner). A fundraising campaign starts this week and lasts through November 17. From our dedicated playfield leadership committee:
