Playground installation begins at Vista Terrace Park by Walla Walla | New
There ! And just like that, Vista Terrace Park almost has a playground in the Adair Vista neighborhood, 920 Mountain Park Drive, north of US Highway 12.
But hold on to your horses. It’s not quite ready to play.
Mountain Rock Design & Construction in Spokane began installing the equipment on Monday, September 20.
The project was a community-based effort, led by Sunrise Rotary and the City of Walla Walla and assisted by Walla Walla Noon Rotary, Hayden Homes Foundation, a grant from the Murr Family Foundation, and numerous individual contributions to cover the cost of nearly $ 225 $ 000 to $ 250,000. Sunrise Rotary also hoped to set up a covered picnic area, but expenses do not allow this at the moment.
Sunrise Rotary Project Committee Chairman Pete Erb said the next step would be adding curbs, compacting gravel and pouring a rubber surface and the site will be fenced until work is completed. are completed.
Next, Sunrise Rotary, Walla Walla Area Crime Watch, and Disability Network hope to hold some sort of opening ceremony and celebration. They have worked very hard to make the site accessible to everyone, including grandparents who want to approach play structures with their grandchildren, Erb said.
Fundraising is still ongoing. Donations by check can be sent to the Rotary Club of Walla Walla, PO Box 418, Walla Walla, 99362.
