Mayfair Park Retaining Wall and Stair Replacement

Updated: March 11, 2024

Spring 2024

Seattle Parks and Recreation has completed the design for the improvements of this park. The bid for construction will be advertised after the Seattle Department of Construction & Inspections (SDCI) approves the permit.

We anticipate construction starting in early summer 2024, pending SDCI permit approval. The project will replace the existing timber retaining walls, wood stairs and wooden light poles/standards that have all reached the end of their usefulness. The project requires some paving repair and removal of a few trees that are either hazardous or need to be removed to accommodate the wall replacement.

Sample boring took place in May 2020, this was required to determine the best engineering solution for the retaining walls: Boring locations are indicated with dots, in the attached PDF document with photos.

The Seattle Parks District provides $1,100,000 in funding for the planning, design and construction.


Planning and Design: Complete
