Cedar River Recreation 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 is the acquisition of 51.6 acres for the final linkage in the city’s Cedar River Greenway System, which began in 1917. Future development will support active and passive recreation, including ballfields and picnicking.
