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.
Benton City will use this development grant to build a new City park within a new 63-lot single-family housing development. The park will include a splash pad with no less than ten play elements, ADA restroom, two sheltered picnic areas, and parking. The park will provide area children a safe place for water play in our fast-growing community.
