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.
The Snohomish County Department of Parks and Recreation will use this grant to build a synthetic turf field in Carousel Ranch Community Park, in the town of Maltby. The field will support multiple sports including, baseball, softball, soccer, football, and lacrosse, as well as leisure play. The County also will add new lights and soccer nets. Snohomish County will contribute more than $1.5 million in cash and potentially a grant from the state Youth Athletic Facilities program.
