SLIDESHOW: Roxhill Park remake nearly complete; Celebration set for April 20
The completely remade Roxhill Play area and skatespot will finally make its public debut on April 20 in a community celebration to celebrate the completion of the project. The park is located at 9244 29th Ave SW at the corner of Barton Street SW and 29th Ave. SW.
The event will feature Skate Giveaways, lessons, refreshments and live entertainment and will run from 11am to 2pm.
The play area features an all new Roxhill Castle, designed by Leathers Associates and assembled almost entirely by community volunteers. Just to the north is the new Skatespot built by West Seattle's Grindline Skateparks.
The organizations that will be thanked for their work will be the Roxhill Roxstars, California Skateparks (who worked on the design), Street League Skateboarding Foundation, the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and Seattle Parks and Recreation.
The process to get the park remade began in 2011 and the plan, with plenty of community input, evolved through various playground equipment choices and skate park features.
