Reminder: Ribbon cutting July 24 for Seaview Park’s inclusive playground

Selected design for city’s first inclusive playground, at Seaview Park.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for an inclusive playground at Seaview Park is set for 10 a.m. Wednesday, July 24.

The park is located at 80th Avenue West and 186th Street Southwest.

The playground, which is nearing completion, features play activities for children of all abilities including a poured-in-place fall surface material that accommodates wheel chairs and other mobility devices as well as multiple interactive spaces accessible at ground level.

In addition, the number of swings at Seaview Park playground has been expanded from four to seven with the addition of an adaptive swing, a disc swing and a toddler bucket swing.

“As a neighborhood playground, we designed this in partnership with the Seaview community,” said City of Edmonds Deputy Parks and Recreation Director Shannon Burley. She thanked the Edmonds City Council — led by Councilmember Mike Nelson — for providing the resources necessary to fund the playground.

  1. Long ago and far away, the neighborhood residents help the city prep the park. It was exciting to see neighbors involved in making the park a reality. It gave us a weekend, a chance to contribute as well as share an impromptu picnic with neighbors.

    I’ve lived in the neighborhood for more than half a century and it’s been fun to see the park used by families with children, sporting teams, tennis players as well as walkers enjoying the trees and the path around the park.

    Thank you for maintaining and upgrading the park over the decades. It’s a neighborhood treasure.
