Cedar Grove Park Athletic Field Drainage LP

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 Bothell will use this grant to install a drainage system at Cedar Grove Park. Poor drainage at the field has severely limited the seasons for baseball, softball, and soccer. Cedar Grove Park is the only practice and game field in the north Bothell-Snohomish County section of the community. The field will be used much more if it can better handle the Northwest’s wet spring and fall weather. Bothell will contribute $250,000 in cash, staff labor, a grant from the state Youth Athletic Facilities program, and donations of labor and materials.
