Play By Design Picked For Hood River Children’s Park

The City of Hood River has selected the firm Play by Design to lead the process of re-designing and re-building Children’s Park.  Children’s Park was shut down for a time this year and reopened only in part due to deterioration of the nearly 25-year-old wooden structure.  The Children’s Park steering committee will hold a public meeting on the re-design next Thursday (October 26) at 6 p.m. at the Hood River Fire Hall.  Play by Design will take input from the community, children’s drawings, and in-person meetings with elementary school students to draft a playground design.  An unveiling of that draft is set for November 9 at 7 p.m. at the Hood River Middle School Auditorium.  Funding for the project will come from the City of Hood River, Hood River Valley Parks and Recreation District, and community donations.  The Hood River Rotary Foundation is taking donations for project.
