FERNDALE, Wash. – Ferndale hopes to get state funding to build a new playground inside Pioneer Park.

Sam Taylor with the city says the Star Park playground project will be located next to the historic log cabins, and would be similar to Lynden’s Million Smiles playground.

He says state grant money would match what the city can bring in, and the playground won’t cost too much because it will be built by volunteers.

A playground design firm is coming to Ferndale next Wednesday to get ideas from local elementary school kids.

The city will unveil the design at 6:30 that same evening at the Ferndale High School cafeteria.

People will be asked to pick their favorite out of two designs.

Volunteers can also sign-up at the meeting.
