The Children of Port Angeles dreamed up something special, and on September 11, 2002, their dream a reality. The original Port Angeles Dream Playground was built over five days in September of 2002 by more than two thousand volunteers using tools and equipment loaned by the community. It was one of the largest volunteer projects Clallam County had ever seen. Over $185,000 was raised to pay for the construction with most of the funds coming from local businesses and more than 10,000 individual contributors.
During the summer of 2021, volunteers, donors, and local corporate sponsors joined the Dream Playground Board to replace the aging wooden structures and wood chip ground covering with one of the safest, best designed, and most inclusive playgrounds in the state.
