Park for the Blind Rededicated

Join the fun, food and festivities to help celebrate the rededication of Everett’s Lions Park on Saturday, August 15th, at 10:00 a.m.

Everett’s Mayor Ray Stephanson will officially rededicate Lions Park in a ceremony and community celebration on Saturday morning August 15th. All Lions, family and friends are invited. Back in the early 70’s Lions Park at 75th and Cascade Dr. was named for Everett’s Lions Clubs as a thank you for over a half century of community service.

On August 15th the park will be rededicated after 1 million dollars plus was spent on upgrading the park. Included in the park’s improvements are amenities to help make Lions Park “user friendly” for the blind. This was at the request of Everett’s Lions Clubs.

There are now safer wider trails with safety guards and indicators imbedded in the walkways to alert the visually impaired that stairs are present. This is important for cane travel. Signs will be in Braille and there will be a tactile map to help the blind see the park. Everett’s clubs donated funds to help create these improvements for the blind.

Join other Lions and friends in the fun, food and festivities in a community celebration of Lions Park and Lions Clubs.
