Executive visits Dick Thurnau Memorial Park as part of Parks tour 

King County Executive Dow Constantine recently visited Dick Thurnau Memorial Park in White Center as part of his 100 miles in 100 days through King County Parks where he met with employees and checked out a new playground. 

“Parks Specialist Christian Loko took me to the new playground our staff installed with funds generated by the King County Parks Levy,” Executive Constantine said. “We ended at the White Center Bicycle Playground, which provides kids a safe place to learn how to ride bicycle. It is the first playground of its kind in the nation.” 

The parks is also the home of a disc golf course that attracts players from around the country, where the Exec tried his hand at disc golf. “I got it in the basket on my third toss,” he said.
