If you’ve never been to North Acres Park, now is a great time to check it out. Located just west of the I-5 on-ramp at 130th, this park recently finished a major renovation – just in time for summer weather.
Stop by this Saturday, June 2nd from 11:00am – 1:00pm for the park’s official opening. The sprayers will be on and the celebration includes treats and music.
Prior to the renovation, North Acres was plagued by nuisance and criminal behaviors. The renovation addressed much of this by providing more open access and better lines-of-sight. The wading pool (which has been closed in recent years) was replaced with an exciting new spray park with spray features for multiple ages.
The new play area is twice the size of the old one, featuring a playground for 2-5yr olds and another designed for 5-12yr olds. Best of all, the restrooms now face westward, so if you’re watching more than one child, you can easily see the spray park, restroom entrances and play areas in a single view.
