Seattle Parks and Recreation opens renovated Fairmount Playground in West Seattle
Today, Friday, February 4, 2022, Fairmount Playground’s newly renovated South Playground opens to the public! Fairmount Playground is located at 5400 Fauntleroy Way SW
The renovated playground includes play structures for children aged 2-5 and 5-12. The equipment includes several slides, an aerial ring hike, a small climbing net, suspension bridges for jumping and balancing, and fun ways to go up and down. Both structures include accessible transfer platforms. Two new accessible play ramps have been installed. A future pavement renovation project will update adjacent pathways to meet current accessibility standards and connect the north play ramp to a new accessible sidewalk.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the public process and a special thank you to the students of Fairmount Park Elementary for their input and patience during construction. This project is funded by the Seattle Park District.
