Ready to Play? Mary's Park Playground Now Open.

PULLMAN, WA—The City of Pullman, in partnership with the Pullman Kiwanis, is excited to officially open Pullman’s first ADA-accessible playground in Mary’s Park located at 1570 SE Johnson Avenue.

Situated on five acres of land donated by the Herb Neil estate in 2010, Mary’s Park boasts a nearly-10,000-square-foot playground, complete with two play structures, SpectraTurf rubber surfacing that supports multimodal function, and other free-standing playground pieces that provide for an engaging, inclusive experience.

“A great deal of fundraising, designing, and engineering propelled this project forward, and we’re ecstatic to present a new brand of playground to the Pullman community that will appeal to families and children of all abilities,” said Parks & Facilities Director Kurt Dahmen.

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.
