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.
This project adds four tennis courts, a basketball court, and one soccer field to the Barbour Recreation Complex in Chewelah. The current complex consists of two softball fields, one hardball field, one practice football field, one soccer field, barrier free restrooms, storage and parking areas. The complex was originally developed in 1991 using IAC funds through an interlocal cooperation agreement between the City of Chewelah and Chewelah School District #36. Recently a new committee with energy and focus was put together to complete the Complex. There are no public tennis courts within 20 miles of Chewelah and one soccer field for over 30 teams.
