The following is written by Sumner Mayor Dave Enslow:
A little over a year ago, I had the honor of “opening” the new zip line in Loyalty Park by riding it into a ribbon. A year or so before that, a large group walked through the ribbon to open the Sumner Link Trail while music from Chariots of Fire played in the background. New playground equipment is going in at Seibenthaler Park, and improvements are coming to the Sk8 Park.
We love our parks. We gather there to play, to exercise, to relax and to attend community events. The question is, what do we need next? Our current Parks & Trail Plan is about 20 years old, and we’ve simply completed almost everything in the plan. It’s time to dream again and plan the next 20 years. What do we need? What do we want? You need to tell us.
There’s currently a Parks & Trail Survey that asks you to do just that. It takes about five to ten minutes, depending on how much you want to dream, and it will shape the future of parks and trails in Sumner, two assets that are key to our identity. Please take this survey by September 5, whether you live here, work here or enjoy visiting here. If you are a business, please ask your employees to take it. After all, the parks are here for you to enjoy for many years to come.
