Parents always called it the “Red Park.” The new Snoqualmie playground, Autumn Avenue Park, kept its red accents, but it’s much more fun now, thanks to a $100,000 remodel by the city. Dozens of neighborhood kids turned out Thursday, Sept. 19, for the grand opening of the new features at 7121 Autumn Ave. S.E., near the intersection of Autumn Avenue and Pratt Street.
“We drive down Autumn every day. My daughter has been watching. She said, “The orange fence is gone!” said mom Robin Forman, whose daughter Maddie, 8, joined a horde of youngsters as they explored the new slide, climbing walls, zip-ride and bouncy toys at the park.
Other Snoqualmie playgrounds will get similar upgrades in the coming years.
If you visit 'Red Park', take a short walk to the Stillwater Bog Natural Area and interpretive platform. Snoqualmie has more than 30 miles of trails connecting the city. Maps are available at the YMCA, Snoqualmie Library, and City Hall.
