News & Highlights
People needed for playground design committee
Key Pen Parks is a recipient of a Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office grant which will allow us to expedite Phase 1 on the Gateway Park construction. This grant also pushes up the construction of a new playground by about two years, with a completion date tentatively scheduled for early 2017.
We need the public's help in designing the new playground and are welcoming anyone to be a part of the Gateway Project Playground Committee. What kind of playground would you like to see? What materials? What features will make this a destination for area families and beyond?
Anyone is welcome to participate; we especially need people who have, or spend a lot of time with, playground-age children. The first meeting will be at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, Aug. 18, in the park office at Volunteer Park. If you are interested in being involved or have questions, email Scott Gallacher at ScottG@keypenparks.com.
Please note, this committee is for the playground only. Public input on the overall Gateway Park comprehensive plan was collected in 2014 and early 2015 and a plan has since been approved by the park board of commissioners.
