Zip line at Loyalty Park | Sumner Mayor Update

Last week, I enjoyed what I think was the best evening ever in Sumner. Earlier in the day, the Parks Department had finished installing the new play equipment in Loyalty Park, including the new zip line. It was warm, sunny, and all sorts of families came out to give it a try.

Last week, I enjoyed what I think was the best evening ever in Sumner.  Earlier in the day, the Parks Department had finished installing the new play equipment in Loyalty Park, including the new zip line.  It was warm, sunny, and all sorts of families came out to give it a try.

People were filled with anticipation; kids started waiting patiently in line for their turn.  Some dads gave kids a friendly push to get them going while other parents and family sat by and enjoyed all the activity.  It was truly a community coming together in the most natural way.

We are known for our parades and large events, but sometimes, I think it’s these quieter moments between a few neighbors on a spring evening that really define living in Sumner.  I want to thank our Parks Department and really all the City staff for creating and maintaining the beautiful space to make that happen. Loyalty is now over 100 years old, and it’s still serving the public with as much excitement and enjoyment as when it was brand new, I imagine.

And thank you to all of you too, for helping out neighbors and gathering for pleasant evenings, even if it just means giving a push on a zip line.
