KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Toyota of Tri-Cities Playground of Dreams has officially reopened with a $1 million facelift.
The new, 1,600-foot playground is made out of durable materials that resist heat and splinters. It also features an all-inclusive design that allows kids of different abilities to play side-by-side together.
The new structure replaces the deteriorating wooden structure that was originally built by donors and volunteers in 1999.
“We’re grateful and wish to honor those that had the vision to build the first playground, and thankful to the community for its continued commitment two decades later to fund a safe, inclusive, dream worthy playground,” said Parks and Recreation Director Emily Estes-Cross.
Inscribed pickets purchased by donors that surrounded the original playground can be picked up at the Numerica Pavilion (formerly the Southridge Sports and Events Complex) until August 6.
