Exciting news for Tri-Cities children! The Playground of Dreams at Columbia Park in Kennewick is set to officially reopen Saturday!

The grand opening ceremony is at 11 am Saturday, June 15. Some of the improvements were made to make the playground more accessible to kids of all abilities.

According to a Press release from the City of Kennewick:

The state-of-the-art, inclusive playground replaces the weathered and deteriorating wood structure originally constructed by donors and volunteers in 1999.

The 1,600-square-foot modern structure is constructed of durable materials that resist heat and splinters, includes custom elements iconic of the Tri-Cities, and features an inclusive design that enables kids of various abilities to play side-by-side with their peers.

Also included in the festivities is the ribbon cutting for the 2,600-square-foot Columbia River Landing (golf) clubhouse. That celebration includes live music, prizes, demonstrations and half-price membership specials at the Columbia Park Golf Tri-Plex from 11am to 4pm.
