    Join us on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at Ray Schleihs Park as we officially cut the ribbon for the new playground equipment. The park is located at 5400 NW 55th Avenue.

    A train theme sets this park apart from the others in our community, as it is along the old interurban rail. The surface will be one that parents will enjoy as it is built with 2’ x 2’ interlocking mats, so no mess!
