Redmond, WA – Just in time for summer, residents of the Spiritbrook neighborhood will celebrate the re-opening of the local park, Tuesday, June 26, 12:30 – 2pm, 6500 151 Ave NE.
Originally built in 1974 when the Spiritbrook neighborhood was developed, the park has recently gone through improvements and renovation. Working together, the Public Works and Parks and Recreation department redesigned the site from below ground, to address the site and neighborhood drainage problems.
The site contains a small wetland, which is now identified with wood post and rail fencing. A short walk along the path allows visitors to peek into the wetland.
Neighborhood children can enjoy a new and enlarged play structure, small sand area, pickle ball court, basketball hoop, loop trail, and a small shelter for small gatherings. The play field is smaller than before to accommodate drainage, but now it is flat and dry, allowing for casual games and play.
Residents are invited to celebrate the ribbon cutting, and spend the afternoon at the park. Games, activities and light picnic snacks will follow the ribbon cutting, and continue until 2:00pm.
