Giant Egg Disappears from Discovery Playground
SPOKANE VALLEY, WASH— Known and loved for its larger-than-life play and learn features, Spokane Valley’s Discovery Playground is missing a giant egg from its Eagles’ Nest play area. The disappearance was discovered Thursday morning.
“We are extremely disappointed and frustrated that the egg has been stolen for the third time since the playground opened,” said Spokane Valley Parks and Recreation Director Mike Stone. “This leaves a big hole that negatively impacts our playground users.”
The cream-colored fiberglass egg is about two feet high by two-and-a-half feet long and is one of a group of three on which children play. Two eggs were taken in 2010, but were spotted by an alert citizen and returned within days. Similarly, all three eggs were taken about a month ago, and again, alert community members helped return them within a day.
The theft has been reported to the police, but Stone is hoping someone in the community has seen the egg and will report it so it can be returned to its home at Discovery Playground.
Anyone with information about the missing egg is asked to contact the City of Spokane Valley Parks & Recreation Department at 509-688-0300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
