Bacon And Eggs Skateable Art Skate Park

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 Town of Wilkeson will use this grant to build a bacon-and-eggs-inspired, skateable, pop art structure at its skate park. The 3,600-square-foot structure will be build on the south end of the skate park and will add four skating elements to the park. The skate park serves nearly 500 residents plus surrounding towns and unincorporated developments nearby. Located along the Foothills Trail, the park’s improvements will enhance opportunities for bikes, scooters, rollerblading, and skateboarding. Wilkeson will contribute $20,017 in donations of cash, labor, and materials.
