06/14/2019 - Thank you for reading!
Work on Phase 1 park elements in Windjammer Park is coming to an end, and our regular construction updates are following suit. Over the past few months our crews have worked to complete installation of new trees, shrubs, and grasses, basalt stone bricks on the new pavilion and kitchens, pavement at two new parking lots, and a new splash park and nature play area. While there are still a few finishing touches, all the new buildings have been completed. We’ll miss connecting with you on a regular basis, but we’re looking forward to sharing the new park with you at the end of this month.
Celebrate with us at Windjammer Park on June 29
We’re having a party starting at 10:30 a.m. on June 29 to celebrate the grand opening of Windjammer Park. Discover pirates, music, treasures, and more. We’ll have a ribbon cutting and turn on the water, and Sno-Isle Library will lead a story walk. Hope to see you there. Visit the website homepage for more information.
Fun fact of the week
If you’ve been keeping track, you know we’ve sent 192 construction updates since June 2015. Over the years we’ve brought you fun facts on everything from where the highest tides are found in the U.S. (Anchorage, Alaska) to what makes a boulder a boulder (a boulder is a rock that is too big for a person to move). We hope our facts have brought as much fun into your life as they have into ours.
Finishing touches and plant maintenance will continue throughout Windjammer Park until the park fully re-opens on June 29.
