Status
Awaiting Legislative Action
WWRP Applicant: Lacey Parks & Rec Dept WWRP Category: Trails WWRP Grant: $53,172 Applicant Match: $53,172 Project Type: Development County: Thurston  Legislative District: 22nd 

The City of Lacey will use this grant to develop a connecting asphalt trail and bridge within Woodland Creek Community Park, located in Lacey. The goal of this project is to provide a non-motorized trail link through park which will connect to the Lacey Woodland Trail, a regional trail system. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be nonmotorized trail recreation for walkers, bikers and runners. The park is the eastern terminus of the trail and a heavily used trailhead. This is a critical link in the regional trail system. This project was identified after two public meetings in the park master plan, adopted by the City Council on December 2, 2010, and on pages 88 and 127 of the Comprehensive Plan for Outdoor Recreation adopted by the City council on July 22, 2010. The Thurston Regional Trails Plan identifies this project as an important goal.
