WWRP Applicant: City of West Richland WWRP Category: Local Parks WWRP Grant: $245,000 Applicant Match: $254,941 Project Type: Acquisition County: Benton 

This grant will allow for acquisition of upland property adjacent to aquatic land. Phase I acquisition will include relocation in preparation for future Phase II development of Upland Local Park. The two parcels to be acquired are owned by one land owner, who is working with the City to support relocation in order to provide this park and recreation opportunity for permanent outdoor recreation. Future development of upland local park amenities and water-dependent recreation will include restrooms, parking, and trailhead emergency access that support adjacent riverfront high impact water access amenities. In addition, this local park will also feature picnic areas that will retain existing trees for shade. The park will feature recreational opportunities such as a community pavilion, splash pad, and open space for other outdoor recreation activities. The comprehensive plan will interconnect this upland park to support riverfront access amenities, trail and non-motorized river access. The comprehensive park and water access plan will improve and expand river access and recreation in an economically challenged, socially diverse neighborhood-- with amenities that will also be accessible to regional residents and visitors of all types.
