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.
The City of Covington used this grant to construct a community park, located within the City of Covington. This project met the high priority recreation needs of a young and growing community by expanding the trail system, adding a multi-purpose sports field, and providing a location for community events. This project allowed the City to develop a multi-purpose sports field, provided parking, trail development and provided two ADA portable toilets. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is for general outdoor recreation.
