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.
This project in Franklin County renovates a 20 year old community swimming pool. The upgraded facility meets current sanitary and safety standards, including barrier-free restrooms, locker areas, and pool access. A children’s splash pool and water slide are included. The community provided significant volunteer assistance to match the grant.
