Chehalis Recreation Park Renovation Phase 2

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 Chehalis will use this grant to upgrade four existing ballfields and replace an old playground in Recreation Park. The scope of work includes installing a new automated irrigation system, an engineered drainage system, fine grading, and adding fresh top-soil to the ballfields. Also, the project will include surface upgrades and pathways to ensure barrier-free access to the fields and other areas of the park. The new playground structure, with its engineered wood fiber surface is designed to meet current ADA standards. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is youth softball and active play areas.
