Upper Kiwanis Park Redevelopment/Phase 1
- Funded in 2007
Yakima will use this grant to add nearly 2 acres to the Upper Kiwanis Park and equip the park with modern recreational amenities such as an 8,800-square-foot skate park, a youth baseball field, a volleyball court, basketball court, play equipment, a new restroom, and parking. Members of the Yakima Lions, Kiwanis, and Rotary clubs have joined forces to spearhead the improvements and have provided $500,000. This is in addition to the $700,000 they contributed to the initial development. Yakima will contribute $792,500 in council bonds, equipment, labor, materials, and donations of cash and labor.
