Resized 20201007 145636

In these chaotic times, it’s not difficult to see the bad in things. Here in our small community, it is also not difficult to see the good. Inspiring acts of kindness and generosity are happening all around us. The Singleton Park Playground Renovation Project in Manson is a perfect example, showing that the power of community is alive and well in the Lake Chelan Valley.

Several years ago, Manson Parks identified the need to replace the aging playground equipment at Singleton Park. In 2019, the project gained momentum, and in 2020, it went from a dream to a reality.

The new equipment was ordered in January of 2020, manufactured, and then delivered in April. Due to the heavy pandemic restrictions in place, installation of the equipment was delayed. In September, with a safety plan in place, a group of dedicated volunteers installed the equipment. If current COVID restrictions loosen, the new playground is scheduled to open in the spring of this year. For now, it remains closed as we await warmer weather so work can resume. The next steps of the project are adding several benches, signs, completing the concrete sidewalk, and adding safety surfacing.

The playground, even in its unfinished state, is a place of wonder! It exceeds all expectations and is exactly what our children deserve: a place where people of all abilities can play side-by-side. It is the first inclusive playground in our valley, and it truly couldn’t come at a better time.

Manson Parks would like to recognize and give thanks to following supporters, who truly believe in the importance of play and physical activity. A huge “Thank You!” goes out to our financial donors:

THE TOM & MEG NAMES FAMILY FOUNDATION, Burke Move With Us Grant, Manson Kiwanis, Lake Chelan Rotary, Mountain View Lodge, The Community Foundation of North Central Washington and Give NCW! Campaign supporters, Chelan-Douglas Developmental Disabilities Program, Wenatchee Valley Medical/ Confluence Health, Community Support Committee, Lake Chelan Community Service Council, Lake Chelan Lions Club, Chelan Walmart Lake Chelan Building Supply, Manson Red Apple Market, Cashmere Valley Bank, Karl and Cathy Blum, Sue and Roger Baker, Betty Bordner, Chelan Sand & Gravel, Chelan Concrete, Dave’s Apple Barrel, David & Cindy Sneesby, Green Dot Sub Shop, Viki Downey, and Felix & Krystin Guerra.

And to those who selflessly volunteered their time and energy:

BRIAN PATTERSON, Randy Doull, Don Christenson, Tom Tochterman, Ty Witt, Barry Leahey, Karen Pembroke, Kirk & Mary McGovern, Robert & Karen Takagi, Steve Clark, Roger & Sue Baker, Rick Auger, Adelina Grajeda, Alicia Alexander, Johnny Morfin, Nick Pittman, Harold & Sherry Pittman, Ben Riippi, Maria Zaragoza, Alaric Pratt, Sara Jones, Taylor Quigley, Travis Schoenwald, Bill Sharkey, Fred Barkley, Gregg Neff, Larry Lesmeister, Loa Servis, Honorina De Jesus, Evelyn De Jesus, Bill Jarr, Lester Cooper, Dale England, and Robert Campbell.

Manson Parks could not be more grateful to the people mentioned above. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for coming together to bring some good news to our valley in these unprecedented times. This valley is truly is unlike any other. It’s the people who make this place we call “home” so special. For those of you who have not been able to help with the project, we hope to see your smiling face at the playground once it opens. The laughter and memories soon to be created at Singleton Park are what this is all about. The magic doesn’t end here, it’s only just beginning!
