One of Federal Way’s favorite playgrounds closed Tuesday, Dec. 17 for the beginning of major renovations.  The playground is expected to be re-opened in May 2014.

Family Funland was built in 1994 with strong community support and volunteer involvement and has been well loved by Federal Way kids and families over the years. The playground now needs renovation to bring it current with today’s recreational and safety standards. The Parks Department will also be adding play features designed for children with developmental disabilities.

The project is budgeted at more than $431,000. Project funds are coming from city playground funds, development mitigation funds and community donations.

For more information about the project, contact Steve Ikerd, Parks and Facilities manager at (253) 835-6911 or steve.ikerd@cityoffederalway.com.
