Sitka Community Playground to officially open at 10 a.m. on July 4

All are invited to the ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new Sitka Community Playground at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 4. The new ADA-compliant playground is located at Crescent Harbor, next to the tennis courts and the Sitka Sound Science Center.

Before the ribbon gets cut and the children — of all ages — rush unto the 12,000-square-foot play space, we will take a few minutes to appreciate the many individuals, families, businesses, nonprofits and organizations that have worked for years to make this modern playground a reality. The Sitka Community Playground was a Sitka Health Summit community wellness project (in 2011 and again in 2015), and more than $800,000 was raised to make it a reality.
