01/28/2019: "Playground-on-the Green Designs Open House"

Bring your kids and come to one of two public meetings -Monday, Feb. 11, from 2:30-4:00 p.m. or 6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Eastsound Fire Station - at which Ben Johnson of GreenWorks will present draft designs and receive questions and comments related to the proposed playground on the Village Green.

Over the past several years, as the EPRC and citizen committees have explored a vision for Eastsound, young parents have repeatedly asked for a playground for their children in the village core. In 2018, the EPRC, partnering with County Parks and Orcas citizen volunteers, received a $55,000 Lodging-Tax grant to construct a small playground in the northwest corner of the Village Green.

The goal from the beginning has been to create a playground that echoes the design and materials of the Stage-on-the-Green. County Parks has contracted with GreenWorks, a design company in Portland, OR that specializes in nature-based playgrounds, to design the space. The Design Committee (Ken Katz, (Project Manager); Zack Leck, David Kau, Chuck Greening, Margaret Payne and Paul Kamin (EPRC), Dona Wuthnow, (County Parks) invites your input on designs that feature glacial-erratic rocks and peeled logs as central features.

Construction will begin late winter or early spring. Like the Stage, the playground is a community project. Volunteers are welcome.
