North Bend receives federal grant for Torguson Park

Snoqualmie Valley Record

Washington state is set to receive nearly $1 million for four local park and trail projects from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, or LWCF.

The city of North Bend will receive $250,000 to build a plaza and loop trail in Torguson Park, unifying the city’s main athletic fields by providing a central gathering space.

The fund does not use taxpayer dollars but instead reinvests a small portion of royalties paid from energy exploration in public waters in parks, trails, wildlife habitat and outdoor recreation opportunities. For more than 50 years, it has funded outdoor recreation and conservation projects in nearly every county nationwide.

“This LWCF grant is crucial to our ability to complete this project,” said Mike McCarty, the city of North Bend’s senior planner. “We look forward to the day when we can welcome visitors to the improved park.”
