New Playground In Pioneer Park!


A new playground has opened in the heart of the City of Puyallup. The new play structure replaces an older structure that was retired because of its age and recent damage to the equipment. The play structure design was chosen by the Pioneer Park Upgrade Committee and incorporates input from the Parks, Recreation and Senior Advisory Board; citizen suggestions; and recommendations from Parks and Recreation staff.

The playground features two separate play structures that makes it possible to serve a larger number of children with age-group specific play features. The smaller structure is designed for children ages 2-5 and the larger structure is built for children ages 5-12. The new playground promotes educational and creative thinking, incorporating musical play and elements of early literacy in collaboration with the Puyallup Public Library.

The new playground equipment is part of the Pioneer Park Recreation Upgrade project which will also include the removal of the existing wading pool and the addition of a new spray park which is planned to open Memorial Day Weekend 2015. The Pioneer Park Recreation Upgrade project is funded by the Parks Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget. The CIP budget includes two funding sources which can only be used for Parks projects: Park Impact Fees paid by new development and a 1/10th of the 1% sales tax dedicated to Parks improvements.
