The Seattle Children’s PlayGarden, in partnership with Seattle Parks & Recreation, is creating a “Pathway for Play!” to welcome visitors and lead them through our enchanted one-acre urban oasis of woodlands, wildlife habitat, farm life, flower and vegetable gardens, and orchards. The Pathway for Play will add important safety, accessibility, and visibility features to our park and will include the Lou Ann Bullard Memorial Garden.

Pathway for Play Project Features:

Our beautiful new informational kiosk  will be a hub for information about the PlayGarden. For the last 17 years, Dr. Abe Bergman has served as our Board Chair. The Kiosk is being built in his name to honor his relentless hard work and dedication to making our community inclusive for all.
