Selah Moves Forward With Plans for New All-Inclusive Park

SELAH — An arsenic-fouled field could soon be an all-inclusive park.

The Selah City Council has agreed to add more than half a million dollars in reserve funds to a $359,000 matching grant to complete the park off Merinda Drive. The money would be used to replace the soil and make the park accessible for children with disabilities.

Selah’s parks and recreation director, Dave Mullen, tells¬†KNDO¬†that the park will feature lots of play opportunities for kids, no matter their physical of mental challenges.

“This is an all-inclusive park, so kids in wheelchairs can go up and down slides and go on swings,” Mullen says. “It’s an all-inclusive park — it’s for everybody.”

Plans include ramps instead of stairs and other special play equipment.

Community members interested in supporting the project can buy bricks through the Selah Parks Foundation.
