Carbonado’s 8th Avenue Park

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

This project involves the creation of a much needed park for the community. The .67 acre site is covered with hazardous trees which must be removed. The park will be outfitted with playground equipment, horseshoe pits, picnic tables, benches, a group shelter and open space. The park will be landscaped and parking will be available. The design of this facility will make it safe and accessible to people with disabilities.
