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 Des Moines Sports Park project will acquire 15.22 acres of land. The proposed acquisition site is the last undeveloped property in Des Moines large enough to accommodate an active recreation facility. Future development plans include sports fields, sports courts, perimeter walking trail, a concession, restroom and maintenance building, play equipment, picnicking and adequate parking.
