Roberts now has new playground equipment to replace the existing deteriorated
equipment. In 2017, City staff began working with the City’s Parks Commission
to select replacement playground structures for the park.
Council approved funding the equipment replacement as part of the City’s 2018
budget process. The equipment, including a curving slide, climbing areas, swings,
and teeter totters, cost approximately $47,700. The City stayed within budget
by removing the Omni Spinner portion of the equipment and having staff install
the play chips.
“Councilmembers and I would like to thank our Parks
Commission for their valuable input and the many hours they spent on this
much-needed project,” Mayor Ken Hearing said. “Thanks to their hard work, along
with citizen input and support, community members can enjoy playground equipment
at this popular park once again.”
EJ Roberts Park is located at 601 NE 6th
Street in North Bend. To learn more about this and other city parks, visit the
