The City of Snoqualmie owns and operates nearly 40 parks. There are two parks that the city is currently planning. They have partial funding secured, but are seeking further funding from corporate sponsors and private donors.
The City of Snoqualmie is launching an all-inclusive playground project. Goals for building this community playground include accessibility for all children along with inclusive spaces that are developmentally appropriate for those with and without disabilities.
The playground will be built at Centennial Fields, located at 39903 SE Parks Street in Snoqualmie (adjacent to Snoqualmie Elementary School). Although the city has funded the design phase of the project and a portion of the playground, we invite help in exploring fundraising ideas.
Construction of a skatepark in Snoqualmie Community Park has been on the horizon for many years. Design is complete, but approximately $46,000 is still needed for construction.
The City of Snoqualmie has not included this in its budget due to other spending priorities, but through grants and private donations, the City’s Parks & Public Works Department has raised significant public and private funding for construction.
Through a generous grant from the Snoqualmie Valley Rotary Club, the project design has been completed by Grindline Skateparks.
Following are confirmed and potential grants and donations for construction.
· Local residents’ fundraising efforts in the amount of $1,000
· YMCA of Greater Seattle contribution of $5,000
· Local private corporations donations of nearly $10,000
· King County Parks’ Youth Sports Facilities grant for $58,000
· Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office grant for $175,000 championed by Senator Mark Mullett
In November 2016, King County Councilmember Kathy Lambert informed the City of Snoqualmie that it will likely receive a $176,000 grant toward the construction. That funding award is dependent on a formal grant agreement to be approved by the Snoqualmie City Council.
