City of Pullman officially opens Mary’s Park

The City of Pullman, in partnership with the Pullman Kiwanis, officially opens Pullman’s first ADA-accessible playground in Mary’s Park located at 1570 SE Johnson Avenue.

Located on five acres of land donated by the Herb Neil estate in 2010, Mary’s Park has a nearly-10,000-square-foot playground, complete with two play structures, and SpectraTurf rubber surfacing.

The design of the Mary’s Park playground was approved in 2018 and initial construction followed in 2019. The Pullman Kiwanis donated about $30,000 toward the approximately $400,000 spent to date.

Access to areas outside of the playground will be restricted for a time as City staff continue landscaping on the property. Plans for next year include paving, marking, and signing the park’s large parking lot, installing a permanent restroom, and erecting a picnic shelter.
