Bradley Lake Park Phase III

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

Bradley Lake Park Phase III is the final phase of development that will complete the Master Plan for this heavily used community park. The park provides a variety of recreational opportunities for residents from picnicking, walking, fishing, and birdwatching – all just a few minutes from an area that is a dense mixture of single family housing and businesses in the rapidly growing South Hill Mall area. This Phase III project includes additional paved pedestrian trails, construction of two youth baseball fields, a restroom, parking, landscaping, and fencing. In 1998 the City of Puyallup purchased this park site through a voter approved bond and with an IAC grant. Previous phases completed in 2002 and in Spring 2004 included paved pedestrian trails, fishing docks, picnic shelter, benches, amphitheater development, parking, a restroom, and all the necessary infrastructure.
