Allan Yorke Park East Ballfield With Lighting

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 Bonney Lake will use this grant to build a multi-use athletic field with synthetic turf and lighting in Allan Yorke Park. This new field will allow year-round use and will be available for municipal recreation program and community group use including organized baseball, softball, soccer, rugby, and lacrosse clubs. The field will have an overlapping Little League field, be enclosed by a fence, and have a paved walkway connecting it to the parking lot. A new restroom is included. Bonney Lake will contribute more than $2.8 million in cash and potentially a grant from the Youth Athletic Facilities program.
