By next summer, children will have new play equipment of their own choosing to enjoy at Atfalati Park. And it wasn’t only the kids who made the decision! The City of Tualatin Parks and Recreation Department asked the community to select new features during a series of outreach events. Over 300 children, parents, grandparents, and those young at heart, participated in choosing their new playground. Community members selected from several different options to replace elements for the 2-5 year old playground as well as the area for older children.

The winner of 2-5 year old play area, with 199 votes, will include a traditional slide and unique climbing features to encourage physical development and activity. The selected 5-12 year old playground, with 174 votes, features an innovative enclosed platform and a corkscrew slide that will take play to new heights! The neighborhood also selected colors for the new playground equipment, which will feature the vibrant hues of blue, purple, red and green as seen the playground drawings.

The Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank those who participated in picking their new playground, and took the time to help us build a connected and engaged community. The work will begin this winter with the hope it will be fully complete by the time kids are out of school. Unfortunately, the play areas will be closed during the project. We thank you for your patience as these improvements are being made.
