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.
The City of Chewelah will use this grant to design and develop a spray park in Chewelah City Park. Development will include landscaping, seating, shade, and updates to the restrooms. The goal of this project is to provide a safe alternative for children who would otherwise swim or wade in Chewelah Creek. The project will be the first spray park in Chewelah. Chewelah will contribute $55,000 in cash and staff labor.
