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 Department will use this grant to finalize development of Bidwell Park. This project includes expanded green space, paved trails, a natural area, landscaping, a restroom, playground, picnic shelter, a baseball field with safety fencing, four sand volleyball courts with court lighting and two pickleball courts. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity provided is active play.
