Six foot unprotected drop within 10-15 yards of playground frequented by toddlers and preschoolers. It is a flat surface with grass between playground and fall (top of retaining wall). Our toddler has run over several times not realizing the severity of the potential fall. Drops onto concrete sidewalk below.
A fence should be added. There are some areas with shrubs but that hides the danger since our kids, like most, find shrubs fun to climb through.
This is an unacceptable safety condition and a major liability for the park.

Cars do not yield the right of way to pedestrians mostly because drivers do not see pedestrians waiting to use the crosswalk.
This is because it is dark and it is not well lit or because there are parked cars and other obstacles preventing drivers from seeing the pedestrians.
One solution would be to put hand held flags for pedestrians to carry across (this works well in Bothel); post some flashing lights that could be activated by the pedestrians; or there could be a stop light for the cars.

Accessing the Polyclinic parking lot on the north side of their building really mucks things up here. The problem seems to be North bound cars turning left (or west) across the south bound lanes of Meridian, as well as having cars exiting that same parking lot.
The intersection stop lights are pretty quick. People in the south bound lanes are confused in how to handle the people using the polyclinic, and so often yield the right of way.
The effect is that only a few cars make it through the intersection (south bound) which is toward North Seattle Community College. About 15 minutes before each morning hour (when classes start) meridian can back up all the way to N 115th st. Lots of cars become impatient and drive aggressively here, sometimes running the red light so that they can continue on their way, either south on meridian, or east towards I-5 on Northgate way.
My suggestions 1) is for the Polyclinic to direct their customers to using their garage entrance (free to the public) which can be accessed from N. Northgate way, just west of Meridian; 2) extend the length of the intersection lights, or 3), prevent north bound drivers on Meridian to turning left into the polyclinic.

Intersection Of East Madison Street And 22nd Avenue Seattle/King, WashingtonThe walk signal for the traffic light at the intersection of East Madison Street and 22nd Avenue takes an extremely long time to respond.
This frequently results in pedestrians choosing to cross the street against the light, which creates the potential for danger.
The problem is that the walk signal which governs the east-west light is not responsive to pedestrian use.
