Clark Lake Park Expansion: Walla Acquisition

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 Kent will use this grant to acquire 5.5 acres at Clark Lake Park. Clark Lake Park is a 125-acre passive park surrounding a 7-acre freshwater lake located at 12415 SE 240th Street in Kent, King County. This will allow the City of Kent to acquire this high priority acquisition for inclusion into the existing park for expansion of the existing undersized parking lot and future development of park amenities. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is passive recreation.
