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.
Snohomish County Department of Parks and Recreation will use this grant to develop Cavalero Park in the city of Lake Stevens. The County will build a parking lot, playgrounds, sand volleyball courts, and a picnic shelter, and install park furnishings and landscaping. Snohomish County will contribute $650,000.
