On July 25, 2022, the Snoqualmie City Council adopted Resolution No. 1618, approving the purchase of new playground equipment for Riverview Park, located at 39000 SE Park Street in downtown Snoqualmie.
The Riverview Park Playground Replacement Project is part of the City’s adopted 2021-2026 Capital Improvement Plan. The current playground equipment is over 25 years old.
After reviewing 11 vendor proposals, the City’s Parks and Events Commission recommended approving a $418,000 playground equipment contract with Allplay Systems, LLC.
The new Riverview Park Playground will feature a railroad theme and includes a new swing set. It will also be accessible for wheelchairs, except for slides, and includes rubber surface material – doing away with the playground’s current play chip base.
The City is hopeful the new playground will be installed within the next year.
Within the next month, the Parks Department will also be repairing the popular zip lines at Fisher Creek Park. The repair has taken longer than anticipated due to the manufacturer no longer making this exact product. The Parks Dept. was able to recently source replacement parts that will maintain the zip lines for years to come.
