Renovations are in the works for Beacon Hill’s Dearborn Park Play Area, including replacing the current equipment with more accessible play structures and more nature-engaged features. The community is invited to learn more and give feedback at an interactive virtual presentation on Wednesday, August 26 at 6:30 p.m. You can register in advance for the online presentation here.

Brandon St. near the Chief Sealth Trail and behind the Dearborn Park International School.

In addition to renovations that will make pathways and equipment ADA compliant, improvements also reflect the findings of a July community survey.Continue reading Feedback Wanted on Proposed Renovations to Beacon Hill’s Dearborn Park Play Area
