The new Commissioner will be appointed by the Park Board and will serve a term of approximately two years. If interested in completing the final two years of this position’s six year term, any appointed commissioner must run for election in fall 2021 to continue serving in 2022 and 2023. This is a volunteer position and must be filled by an island resident. Click here for more information. Click here for process and timeline.

KidsUp! Playground Closed for Phase I Renovation
Phase I renovations begin Monday, January 6; while fundraising continues for Phase II to build the ferry, climbable orcas and art.
The main tower area restoration is complete. The rest of the original structure will be maintained as much as possible while we move forward with our KidsUp! Next Generation of Play re-imagination process.
The structure is being restored and re-imagined in a way that will honor the original playground, but bring new ideas and accessibility. If you are interested, please read the information on our KidsUp! Playground Renovation webpage or on the signage at the site about the overall project.
