Construction has started for Snoqualmie’s new Jeanne Hansen Community Park at 34226 Southeast Jacobia Street on Snoqualmie Ridge.
The park is named for former Snoqualmie Mayor Jeanne Hansen, who served from 1988 through 1995.
This new 16-acre park will feature two synthetic turf sports fields, a tennis court, a walking track, soft-surface nature trails, two playgrounds, a picnic shelter with barbecues, a concession stand, restrooms and parking. A third sports field may be added at a future date. Jeanne Hansen Community Park will be one of three primary athletic complexes in the city.
An official groundbreaking celebration is 3 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 22. The public is invited. A formal grand opening of the park will be scheduled on completion in for 2014.
