Playground of Dreams

Playground of Dreams

The Playground of Dreams is at the east end of Columbia Park and was built in 1999. Around half of the cost of the original playground was donated by Bechtel Hanford, KNDU-TV, and Radio Tri-Cities. Around 6,000 volunteers helped in the construction of the playground

On November 29, 2003, arsonists burnt down the playground. Again the community raised the needed money to rebuild and volunteers from around the area offered a cumulative total of over 8,000 work hours. The playground was reopened on May 8, 2004. No one was arrested for the crime.

The Playground of Dreams has a wooden castle-like structure with artwork that looks like a spaceship, farm, house, and pirate ship along with some local themes including the Blue Bridge and the Cable Bridge. There is also a swing set, monkey bars, a climbing wall, and an obstacle course.

A family fishing pond and an aquatic playground are adjacent to the playground.
