STANWOOD- New Playground Equipment Install at Church Creek Park
You may have noticed increased activity at Church Creek Park. After nearly 20 years, the playground is getting a facelift! The old equipment has been removed and the Public Works crew is preparing the site for the new equipment which will be installed the week of August 17th .
Thank you to the Parks and Trails Advisory Committee who has been working steadily with the city on the design for the playground at Church Creek Park. In keeping with the natural “woodsy” feel of the park’s setting, the committee chose to go with a more earthy color scheme and elements. The new equipment will have a climbing “tree” and a crawl through log, as well as many other elements designed to appeal to a variety of age ranges encouraging children and parents to use the park more often, stay active and help build social skills through interactive play.
We would also like to thank the Stanwood City Council for including, as part of the 2020 budget, funds to improve the usability of parks by providing new modern amenities, and Snohomish County for providing a portion of the funding by a grant through their Small Capital Projects Partnership (SCPP). SCPP is funded from Real Estate Excise Taxes paid on the sale of houses and property in the County. The County then shares a portion of the taxes received to various communities through partnership agreements.
We appreciate the hard work and contributions of everyone that made this project happen and we are very excited to welcome this upgrade to Church Creek Park.
Church Creek Park is located at 27116 72nd Ave NW, Stanwood.
