Carrie Blake Playground Redevelopment

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

The City of Sequim will use this grant to renovate the playground in its flagship recreation site, Carrie Blake Community Park, on the eastern side of downtown Sequim. The City will add a large play structure with elements for people with disabilities, boulders, pathways, benches, picnic tables, and a bike rack. Sequim will contribute $120,000 in cash and donations of labor.
