Construction begins on Lower Woodland ballfields

Seattle Parks and Recreation began construction this week on the Lower Woodland Park ballfields at Green Lake Way North and North 50th Street. The work will replace ballfield lighting and provide other ballfield upgrades.

Fences will be installed that will temporarily limit use of the track.

Portions of the parking lot off Green Lake Way North will intermittently close due to construction equipment.

The ballfields will remain closed through February 2014.

The project provides lighting improvements at Lower Woodland Park’s cloverleaf ballfields (Nos. 3-6). The upgrade begins with demolition of the existing, outmoded lighting system and replacement with a state-of-the-art system. The goal of the project is to enhance play ability with safe, efficient lighting for field users, and to eliminate as much objectionable glare and light spill into the neighborhood as possible.

Lower Woodland Park’s Ballfield No. 1 will also be upgraded. The infield synthetic turf will be replaced, as well as all bases, and the clay pitcher’s mound will be reconstructed. This work will increase the longevity of the ballfield for future enjoyment.

The Parks and Green Spaces Levy Oversight Committee received City Council approval to use Levy inflation funding for 17 much-needed major maintenance projects; Lower Woodland Park lighting improvements is one such project.

Lower Woodland Park tennis court lighting replacement was completed in early 2013.
