New Spraypark and Play Area at Northacres Park Now Open
Seattle Parks and Recreation, Haller Lake Community Club and Bitter Lake Community Center worked together to open a new spraypark and play area at Northacres Park. The park is located at 12718 1st Ave. N.E. in Seattle.
The new playground is approximately double the size of the previous playground, and includes new fun play equipment, an improved entrance and better sightlines. The new spraypark replaces the Northacres wading pool with a re-circulating water system, and spray features that appeal to multiple ages. Key considerations in the new design were safety, water/energy conservation and selection of spray features that the community finds engaging.
The Parks and Green Spaces Levy provided funding for the project, which Seattle voters passed in November 2008. For additional information about the project, visit www.seattle.gov/parks/projects/northacres/playground_spraypark.htm.
