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.

2014 has been a great year in Puyallup so far and we have a lot to celebrate! City Manager Bill McDonald presents a progress-to-date report highlighting the City's progress and successes so far this year. Click here to view detailed report.

Puyallup Public Works is working hard to improve the city's streets and to make them safer. This citywide project includes installation of a new traffic signal at 7th Ave SW/5th St SW, LED street lighting along 7th Ave SW, and vehicular as well as pedestrian safety improvements at various locations. The project began on June 23 and is expected to take five months to complete. View a detailed map and list of construction site locations.

The Puyallup Community Connector Route 425 is a new bus route dedicated to serving downtown Puyallup and South Hill. The bus runs every 30 minutes, connecting Puyallup residents with shopping, recreation, local events, and medical facilities in Downtown Puyallup and South Hill. Throughout this summer season, residents will be able to ride the bus to and from Concerts in Park and the Downtown Farmer’s Market. Visit Pierce Transit’s Puyallup Connector page for more information.

From the first three weeks in August, the right lane on SR 167 and loop roads under the bridge will be closed every night from Monday through Thursday. Construction work is expected to get noisy during this period. WSDOT will notify local residents. For more information or questions about the replacement project, visit WSDOT Puyallup River Bridge page.
