Improvements made by the Parks Department

The volunteers did a great job in cleaning up the park earlier in March. The Federal Way Parks Department has made a number of improvements that will make a great difference to park users. They have fixed the fountain, added a water spigot, worked on the drainage problem at the park, and added some plantings to the entrance area.


The water fountain was donated by Park Pals in 2012. Unfortunately, it didn’t work well and always seemed to need work. The Parks Dept. added a filter that will keep the fountain from clogging. It really works well now. They also added a pump by the fountain that can be used to fill basins and water bowls.  It is set in a deep well of round river rocks for drainage.

Petco donated over $7000 to Park Pals in February. Park Pals volunteers worked at the Santa photo event held in December at Petco. Those of us who worked at the event enjoyed working with the customers who brought their pet in for a Santa photo.Besides dogs and cats, we met guinea pigs, a rabbit, and a duck!

Thank you Volunteers for all your hard work and thank you Petco for your generous donation!
