Cougar Creek Woods Park 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

Clark County Parks used this grant to acquire 10 acres in the residential Felida neighborhood in the northwest part of the Vancouver urban growth area. The ten acre site includes a mixture of flat uplands and wooded side slopes along the Riparian Protection corridor of Cougar Creek. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity provided is walking and picnicking.
