A public survey launched Friday for folks to weigh in on the new playground coming to Matt Hirvela/Bicentennial Park .
Everyone in the community is asked to review three options before the City Council approves a final design . The online survey can be found at
www . surveymonkey . com/r/3PBPBD8
until May 30 .
The playground on site is 18 years old , and aging out of its useful life . The Neighborhood Parks Improvement Subcommittee and the Recreation and Park Advisory Commission have been planning a replacement , with a natural color scheme to complement the landscape . It will accompany a previously purchased swing set that will be installed nearby .
“The parks commissioners have narrowed down the many playground solicitations to just three , ” Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz said Friday . “These three playgrounds incorporate ladders , slides , swings , balance beams , and other fun elements . ”
The project is supported by a $50 , 000 grant from Snohomish County . Those funds , from real estate excise taxes , were allocated in 2019 . The work was delayed by factors related to the pandemic , and now the city is aiming to complete construction this year .
Matt Hirvela/Bicentennial Park , at 4105 222nd Street SW , has benefitted from many volunteer - driven efforts over the past few years , with the construction of a paved trail , gazebo , and sidewalk improvements . The playground will be on the southwest corner .
“We’re excited to bring in this amenity , ” Betz said . “The residents have been waiting patiently to see how we incorporated their feedback and insights . Renovating parks takes time , funding and working together , but we make it happen in Mountlake Terrace . ”
