Salmon Bay Park users can weigh in on new play-area design

Visit the Ballard park on Saturday or take the online survey.

People in Ballard and beyond have a chance to shape the future of the very popular Salmon Bay Park play area.

Salmon Bay ParkSeattle Parks and Recreation is working on a design to revamp the existing play area with new play equipment, accessibility improvements, benches and seating options.

Plans for Salmon Bay Park

Plans are to replacing the current play equipment but keep the zipline, which is new; resurface the play area; add picnic tables, benches and more; and improve accessibility to the play area and the rest of the park.

This video lays out the options for doing this.

How you can make your voice heard about Salmon Bay Park:

Visit the park, at 2001 N.W. Canoe Place, between 10 a.m. and noon Saturday, July 24, to review the schematic design and provide input on three play area equipment proposals.

Watch the video and study the designs online, and then go here to take the online survey.

The city already got public input at a winter open house, and now the project has moved to the final design phase. Work could start later this year.
