Conklin Landing Park Phase III 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 Bridgeport will use this grant to develop the remaining 1.84 acres of the nearly 5-acre Conklin Landing Park. The city will construct seven campsites, a new restroom facility, a parking area, pathways, landscaping, benches and other site furnishings. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is camping.
