Rueben A. Knoblauch Heritage Park ....... Walking Main,
Backstory and Context
Rueben A. Knoblauch Heritage Park is Sumner's newest park, designed and constructed in 1995-96 at the corner of Main Street, Kincaid Avenue and Cherry Avenue.
Built primarily with materials and labor donated by local individuals, families, and businesses, Heritage Park was initially made possible by a generous contribution by the late Senator Knoblauch, who served in the Washington State Legislature for 30 years before retiring in 1977. The Senator's contribution made possible the purchase of the land where the park was built, along with additional items for the park. This half acre downtown park has become a focal point for many community and family activities, including concerts, family gatherings, stage performances, community festivals, and much more - even weddings!
