Orchard Park March 2019

Harvest and Indiana SignThe Orchard Park Splash Pad is located just west of Harvest Parkway, between Mission Ave. and Indiana Ave. in the River District of Liberty Lake. It is approximately 90’ in diameter and features multi-colored concrete. It is comprised of numerous water features including a dragonfly, a tree with squirrels, a baby long-legs spider, a 6’ diameter water web, a tree with apples, a water spout, and a dumping water bucket along with other fun features.

Construction began last summer and is expected to be complete and in full operation by mid-June. The Splash Pad is located adjacent to the new playground currently under construction and promises to bring many hours of enjoyment to local families.

The 1st meeting on January 11th was a productive start!

Parks & Rec Director Jen Camp got the ball rolling by laying out the ground rules for meetings.

City Administrator Katy Allen helped inform the new commissioners about expectations from the City Council and Mayor.

  • Positions 1&2, representing Orchard Park are Bridgette Harris and Tom Sahlberg.
  • Positions 3&4, representing Pavillion Park are David Himebaugh and Jeanette Nall.
  • Postions 5&6, representing Rocky Hill are Laura Franks and Tom Chamberlain.
  • Position 7 is at large and is Laina Schultz
  • Adjunct Positions are Robert Schneidmiller and Sam Nelson.
  • The student representative position will be filled by a yet to be named CVHS student, who resides in Liberty Lake.

City Council Member, Dan Dunne, made a presentation about the new Liberty Lake flag and challenged the commission to help find places in the community that the flag can be displayed.

Commissioners introduced themselves and gave a brief history of their time in Liberty Lake and interest in promoting Parks & Arts.

Jen & Katy challenged the commission to help define and support “Arts” needs and opportunities in Liberty Lake. School programs should be a fruitful starting point and resource for ideas.

On slate for the next meeting (Wed. Jan 24th at 4 pm) is the selection of Chair and Vice-Chair, approval of a Mission Statement and Bylaws and bringing names of those interested in the student position.
