City of Pasco unveils new Chiawana Park playground
PASCO, Wash. - Pasco leaders are celebrating a new playground in Chiawana Park with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Pasco city officials are holding the ceremony at 2 p.m., June 16. The new playground is located at the west end of Chiawana Park, 2020 Road 88.
A City of Pasco news release said the playground is a product of GameTime and includes a parent-child “Expression” combo swing, a Shadow Play TriRunner, a Sensory Wave Climber and more.
The new playground is also compliant with the American Disabilities Act and has the poured-in-place ground covering to help alleviate maintenance costs.
City officials said Chiawana Park is owned by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and managed by the City.
“The public will enjoy this new playground which incorporates more interactive play for children,” said Dan Dotta, Interim Administrative & Community Services Director, “and this playground is another great addition to Chiawana Park.”
The new equipment was paid by the City’s Capital Improvement Fund from tax proceeds from the sale and purchase of real estate in the City of Pasco, the news release said.
