Snoqualmie to build first all-inclusive playground, seeks community input at upcoming meeting

The City of Snoqualmie is launching an all-inclusive playground project – meaning the playground is accessible to kids with disabilities – and wants community input as they dive into the design phase of the project.

Goals for building the new community playground include accessibility for all children along, with inclusive spaces that are developmentally appropriate for those with and without disabilities.

The playground will be built at Centennial Fields located at 39903 SE Parks Street in Snoqualmie (adjacent to Meadowbrook Farm).

Bruce Dees and Associates has been selected to guide the city through this project. Although the City has funded the design phase of the project and a portion of the playground, the dream is much bigger and they will be seeking community help to explore fundraising ideas and other parties to include in the conversation.

If you’d like to share your ideas and find out more about the exciting new playground project, you can attend the Public Kick-off Meeting on Thursday, October 12, 2017 at Snoqualmie City Hall, 386 SE River Street. The meeting starts at 7PM.

  1. Great, another playgroound! The biggest question is why now of the existing ones aren’t inclusive. The ADA law passed nearly 30 years ago before the Ridge got going. Let’s keep raising taxes and bring all of the playgrounds up to this standard
