Victory Heights Playground

Renovated in 2017, the Victory Heights Playground is overseen by Seattle Parks and Recreation, and sits at the heart of our neighborhood. This community activation place serves as the focal point for many annual neighborhood traditions, as well as the site of spontaneous pick-up games of tennis, basketball, frisbee, and more.

Community Message Board

The Community Message Board at the Victory Heights Playground is a fantastic resource for residents to share announcements and opportunities with their neighbors. In an effort to empower the accessibility and inclusiveness of this message board, the community established the following guidelines in February, 2021. We respectfully ask that you follow them to the best of your ability.

  1. Please do not post anything larger than 8.5” x 11.”
  2. All materials will be cleared every three months, beginning March 1, 2021.
  3. You are welcome to repost your materials after any cleaning.
  4. Please reserve political signage for your own property.

Be sure to check out The Marketplace on the backside of the board for lost & found, lessons, yard sales, local services, and more!

Kingfisher Natural Area

In the Southwest corner of Victory Heights sits the beautiful Kingfisher Natural Area, an immersive temperate forest that overshadows the babbling Thornton Creek as it meanders through a grotto between Victory Heights homes. Wander the myriad trails to discover a surprising array of wildlife in an urban forest, and listen for distant calls of owls, hawks, and even coyote throughout the ravine. This space is maintained by the Thornton Creek Alliance, Green Seattle Partnership, and Seattle Parks & Recreation, all of whom are looking for volunteers like you to help protect this treasure. Access points can be found at 20th Ave. NE and NE 98th St., 20th Ave. NE and NE 102nd St., and NE 105th St..
