A Street Sports Complex – Phase 2

Category Overview

Local Parks grants help protect these symbols of vibrant communities, providing places for families to gather and play and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle in an era when people spend increasing amounts of their time inside. The WWRP is the largest source of local parks funding in Washington, helping communities fund the acquisition, development, and renovation of vital recreation areas and green spaces.

Project Highlights

The City of Pasco will use this grant to develop 14 acres of city-owned land south of A Street and buy 2.11 acres of adjacent private property for a sports complex. The City will develop five multi-sport fields with irrigation, paths, a shelter for portable toilets, a playground, parking, and a storage building. The fields could be used for soccer, lacrosse, Ultimate Frisbee, football, and rugby. Buying the additional land will set the stage for a future development of two additional fields. Pasco is Washington’s fastest-growing large city and has extreme wear on its fields. This leads to potential hazards and injuries. This project would help to meet the rising recreational needs of Pasco’s population. Pasco will contribute $203,029 in cash and donations of cash.
