Claybell Park Expansion

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 Richland will use this grant to more than double the size of the 11-acre Claybell Park, a neighborhood park, by purchasing 24 acres. Future development plans call for additional parking, restrooms, two soccer fields, picnic shelters and paved pathways with 12-14 acres left natural. Richland will contribute $272,000 in cash, donations and a state grant.
