Bordering the Civic Center on Sequim Avenue is the Community Plaza. The plaza was designed to be a gathering place and to host community activities. Visitors are encouraged to explore the plaza and discover it's treasures.
Towering 30' high in the Northwest corner of the plaza is the magnificent totem pole donated by the Jamestown S'Klallam Tribe, and depicting the story of "Why the Sun Always Shines in Sequim."
The 911 Memorial is integrated into the flag pole structure and features an 843 pound sheet metal from the fallen World Trade Center in New York City, which was destroyed on September 11, 2001. The artifact was retrieved in 2011 by Police Chief Bill Dickinson, Sergeant Darrell Nelson, and Officer Randy Kellas and was stored by the Police Department for four years in anticipation of incorporation into the new facility.
Descriptive words depicting the characteristics of the City, the Sequim-Dungeness Valley, and the people who live here, are embedded in to the floor of the plaza.
Members of the Sequim Community made donations for benches, trees and tree grates, and pavers to support the Community Plaza project and to be included in this significant part of Sequim's history.
