Ribbon Cutting: City celebrates remodeled Torguson Park, complete with $1.7 million in upgrades

City of North Bend officials are inviting the community to Torguson Park in downtown North Bend to celebrate the unveiling of the remodeled park. A ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate recently completed upgrades will be held at 5PM. on Thursday, September 21, 2017.

Come out and enjoy a BBQ with the Snoqualmie Police Department, play the walking path quiz contest, test out the new park features, visit with Eastside Fire and Rescue and witness the first pitch on the ball field by Mayor Ken Hearing.

According to a press release, in an effort to enhance the experience for the North Bend community, the City Council invested $1.7 million in park improvements, including a new restroom and concession building; relocated and improved sports field with eight new covered dugouts and benches; replaced old metal chain link fencing; and added a new walking, running and biking trail for walking around the park.

Funding for the project was from a Land & Water Conservation Fund grant for $127,350; a Little League donation of $80,000; an insurance damage claim of the previous bathroom and concession building of $87,000; and City funds of approximately $1.3 million.

Construction began in October 2016 and was completed August 2017. Torguson Park is located at 750 East North Bend Way.
