SPOKANE – AM Cannon and Logan Peace Parks are each getting a new playground to replace aging and damaged play equipment. Construction is anticipated to begin mid-November, and last a couple of weeks.
City Council is funding the roughly $160,000 worth of equipment from Northwest Playground Equipment, Inc.
“Working with City Council to replace these playgrounds with brand new equipment is a big win for our neighborhood families, and we are grateful for the collaboration,” said Parks and Recreation director Garrett Jones.
“Children in these two neighborhoods lost some of their playground equipment during the pandemic, so Council went to work to find the funds to speed up replacing the play structures as soon as possible outside of the normal park allocation,” said Councilwoman Candace Mumm.
AM Cannon’s play equipment will include two types of slides, climbing walls and bars, wheels, a spinner, and more. The Logan Peace Park play equipment includes two glide slides, several climbers, wheels, a telescope, skylight, and more.
The playgrounds were originally anticipated to be installed this summer, but delays in the availability of play equipment pushed back the schedule by a few months.
