Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new AVERILL FIELD PLAYGROUND
on SEPTEMBER 27, 2023
About the Project
This is Phase 1 of several long-term projects to improve Averill Field and includes the removal of existing playground equipment and installation of new stormwater detention and treatment system. New site lighting, landscaping, irrigation, and signage will also be installed.
The field is named after Snohomish native and major league baseball hall of famer Earl Averill. He was named to six All-Star teams during his career (1929-1941) and elected to the Hall of Fame in 1975.
The total authorized budget by the Snohomish City Council for Phase 1 is $1,707,498. The general contractor is Langsholt Contracting, Inc. and the playground equipment contractor is Great Western Recreation.
Thank you to Snohomish County & Councilmember Sam Low, the Snohomish Kiwanis, Snohomish community partners, and the Snohomish Parks and Forestry Board for making this project possible.
