Funland Playground - BIGGER, BETTER, STRONGER!
Hermiston is preparing to build one of the largest and most engaging playgrounds in the northwest. The new Funland Playground, a “destination attraction”, is planned to have three zones including “Wildwest, Adventure, and Farmland.” The plans also include a locomotive, wagon train, stagecoach, pirate ship with a Kraken sea monster, a barn and silo with giant slides, giant fruit and vegetables, and, of course, a 6 foot watermelon slice. With many other attractions planned as well, please check out the city’s website for additional information regarding this important and exciting project.
Funland will be a thrilling place for play, education and engagement for all children and abilities. Many of the features are specifically designed for children with ability challenges making it as inclusive as possible. Funland will be constructed with the most durable and vandal resistant materials available. The grand opening celebration is planned for Labor Day Weekend 2020.
