Curtin Creek Community Park – Phase 1 development

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 County will build three Little League-sized baseball and soccer fields, pave a loop path, install two large picnic shelters and restrooms, and add playground equipment, a nature play trailhead, picnic tables, benches, signs, parking, and a maintenance storage building. The County will build trail connections to South Creek Corridor Trail. Clark County will contribute more than $5.6 million in a local grant and park impact fees.
