In 2019 the Cascade School District board voted to surplus the Osborn Elementary property after the construction of Alpine Lakes Elementary School was completed. The City of Leavenworth purchased the Osborn Elementary School property in Spring 2020. We conducted a visioning process to guide the development of this property to serve the needs of the community. The full playground replacement is one step toward making that vision a reality.

Under the direction of the City Council, the neighborhood playground committee was formed in July 2023 and has been meeting twice a month. With the help of industry professionals, the committee was tasked with two primary goals:

  • Identify the footprint of the playground, surfacing options, general layout of the equipment, and
  • Gather feedback from the kids who will be using this amenity.

Next steps include:

  • Gather community feedback on proposed design
  • Receive final quote from playground equipment contractor
  • Seek approval from City Council for purchase of final playground equipment selection
  • Demolition of existing playground
  • Installation of new equipment and surfacing
  • Hold Grand Re-Opening
