IMPORTANT PARKING UPDATE | Saturday, September 6, 2014
The parking lot at Jeanne Hansen Park will not be available for the Grand Opening celebration and barbecue (or ROA picnic beforehand) September 6th. The City of Snoqualmie is asking residents to walk or take a free shuttle they are providing.
WALK: Residents can walk to Jeanne Hansen park by heading up Snoqualmie Parkway and taking a right on Jacobia.
SHUTTLE: Residents can take a FREE shuttle that will loop between Church on the Ridge parking lot (35131 SE Douglas St in the Snoqualmie Ridge Business Park)and Jeanne Hansen Park. The shuttle bus will continually go back and forth between the two destinations beginning at 3:15PM and ending around 7:30PM.
The Jeanne Hansen parking lot WILL be available for those with disabilities. Just look for the flagger at the park entrance.
After drawing over 1,000 residents to Snoqualmie Community Park last Thursday night to watch Frozen on a gigantic, outdoor 40 foot movie screen, the City of Snoqualmie Parks Department is preparing to cut the ribbon on its newest, and one of its biggest, parks.
Abundant Amenities at Jeanne Hansen Community Park
Located on one of the highest peaks of Snoqualmie Ridge in the Eagle Pointe neighborhood, 34226 SE Jacobia Street, the new 16-acre Jeanne Hansen Community Park features the city’s first synthetic turf sports fields (two of them), one grass sports field, tennis court, two kids’ playgrounds, a soft surface nature trail, a big picnic shelter with three barbecues and a concession stand. In addition, the new park also features expansive views of Valley below.
Abundant Family Entertainment at Grand Opening Celebration
The entire Snoqualmie Valley community is invited to a grand opening party for Jeanne Hansen Community Park on Saturday, September 6, 2014, from 4:30PM – 7:30PM, with a special park dedication happening at 5:30PM. There will be entertainment for all ages including bouncy houses, face painters, a DJ, field games on the new synthetic fields – as well as a FREE barbecue dinner and ice cream truck.
The event not only celebrates the opening of the park, but also the completion of Snoqualmie Ridge (Division I and II), for which former Mayor Jeanne Hansen helped develop when the idea for the master planned community was first brought forth about 20 years ago. The creation of Snoqualmie Ridge provided the means to bring the struggling City of Snoqualmie, as a whole, back to economic health.
Third Athletic Complex for a City Dominated by Kids and Families
With the schematic plans for Jeannie Hansen Community Park drawn nearly 8-years ago, it’s been “a long-time coming” for this much-needed field and park space in a community filled with children. The multi-use park will be the third athletic complex in Snoqualmie, along with Centennial Fields and Snoqualmie CommunityPark.
