The City of Burien plans to replace the playground equipment and associated park furnishings at Manhattan Park in 2023, and they’re seeking public input. 

“Our goal is to replace the equipment within the same footprint and have play features for the two primary age groups: 2- to 5-year-old and 5- to 12-year-old youth,” the city said.

The community is invited to take a survey and provide feedback on the theme of the primary play feature and secondary play toy options.


Here is a video by the city that shows the different playground options, including Plants, Sails, Futuristic or Nature – which do you prefer?

The survey is open through May 21, 2023:
