In 2006 nearly 3000 volunteers participated in the building process involved in the Fort Steilacoom Park playground project, and the driving force from start to finish was, “If We Build It, They Will Come.” No one had any idea how true this statement would be until the project was completed, and the playground became a central gathering point for families from throughout the region.
Now, eight years later, volunteers and project coordinators will gather again for a week long ‘work party’ to complete restoration projects to the playground equipment. The FSP playground and two shelters will be closed while the projects are completed from Wednesday, April 23 through Saturday, April 26, 2014. Please note these closure dates on your calendar so your family is not disappointed during a park visit while construction and restoration are active. If you have questions, please call the City’s Parks, Recreation and Community Services Department at 253-983-7887.
