Port Angeles: “Dream playground” nears reality

PORT ANGELES — The kids who helped design it call it “the coolest thing ever.”‘

Adults call it simply “the Dream Playground.”

There’s less than a month to go before construction is scheduled to start on a unique, 12,000-square-foot playground in Erickson Park, and organizers are still on the hunt for more money and more volunteers to make it a reality.

Since last spring, when the project was launched, supporters of all ages have been working hard to collect enough — $135,000 in donations and donated materials, such as lumber and tools — to cover construction.

Major funding for the project is being provided by the Kiwanis Club of Port Angeles, which has been the driving force behind the project.
