Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for New Playground Equipment Set for May 12


New playground equipment has been installed at Normandy Park City Hall, and Community members are invited to join the City Council, Parks Commission, and City staff in a ribbon-cutting celebration and re-opening of the playground on Saturday, May 12 at 10 a.m.

“In 2010, the Parks Commission conducted a Comprehensive Parks Plan update and received input from community members,” reads an announcement. “One of the top priority projects was replacement of the deteriorating play equipment at City Hall Park. The Parks Commission held a series of meetings in late 2011 and took public input during meetings as well as through a survey. Three vendors presented design proposals for the new playground area and the Parks Commission selected the design of PlayCreation, a company located in Burien.”

The equipment is manufactured by Landscape Structures in Delano, Minnesota.

Funding for the equipment and installation is provided by the Normandy Park Metropolitan Park District, which was approved by voters in 2009.

MAKE YOUR MARK (or your child’s)
For a decorative touch, the City of Normandy Park is selling 6” x 6” tiles for a child’s hand or footprint. The tiles will be used for the face of the bench seat in the playground area.

Cost per tile is $25.00 and space is limited so don’t wait to reserve your tiles.

Tiles will be sold during the ribbon-cutting ceremony and after May 12th at City Hall.
