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.
The Town of Wilkeson will use this grant to build a bacon and eggs-themed skateable pop art structure extension to the existing skate park. This 3,600 square foot addition will be constructed on the south end of the existing skate park and the new design will add four new skate elements. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this grant is active use on skateboards, scooters, and bicycles.
