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.
Spokane County Parks, Recreation & Golf will use this grant to develop Bidwell Park located north of the City of Spokane. Development actions include expanded green space, paved trails, landscaping, a restroom, playground, picnic shelter, site furnishings, parking and a multi-use field for softball and soccer. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity provided is active play.
