Gabriel Park

  • Existing playground at Gabriel Park

  • The playground lacks accessibility features.

Project Update

The application process for the Gabriel Park Project Advisory Committee (PAC) is now closed. We received over 40 applications, and we thank everyone for their interest in this project. We will be notifying all applicants soon about our decision for the committee membership, and following that, we will schedule the first PAC meeting and the first Community Gathering event.

Project Overview

Thanks to funding from the Parks Replacement Bond, Gabriel Park's playground will be replaced with a new, more inclusive and accessible play area. The playground is located at SW 37th Avenue and SW Vermont Street.

Through a Project Advisory Committee and Community Gathering events, the community will help guide the development of the design for an inclusive playground.
