Help choose a new playground for Seaview Park


Here is the “Climb, Swing, Play” option that you can vote on for Seaview Park. There are two other entries.

The City of Edmonds is asking families and children to help choose new playground equipment for its first inclusive playground, to be built in Seaview Park, 8030 185th St. SW.

Families can view the playground options and vote via online survey or in person at the Frances Anderson Center.

But hurry. Voting ends Monday, March 11, with a goal of having the new playground installed near the beginning of this summer.

“We are really excited to be bringing this inclusive playground to our City,” says City of Edmonds Deputy Parks and Recreation Director Shannon Burley.

“While all playgrounds in Edmonds are ADA compliant and many have accessible swings, interactive panels and various equipment for children of all abilities, they also feature wood chips as the fall surface, which creates a challenge for children with mobility devices such as walkers and wheelchairs. The Seaview Playground will include a fall surface that is inclusive of all children, while ensuring the playground equipment has something for everyone.”

Edmonds mom and Seaview resident Julie Kuehn can’t wait to see the new playground.

“We have three children who play at Seaview Park nearly every day, and we are so excited about this new playground,” she said.

“Our oldest two daughters love to climb, swing and explore, while our youngest son is unable to move around in his walker. We are honored to be a part of this process to bring a playground to Edmonds that will be fun for all children, regardless of their abilities.”

You can take the survey at surveymonkey.com/r/SeaviewPlayground, where you can see pictures of the three proposals.
