DuPont PowderWorks Skatepark

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 City of DuPont will use this grant to construct a 6,000 square-foot skatepark that will accommodate a variety of skating types and skill levels. Modular skatepark components will be constructed on a level cement pad (100′ x 60′) and include simulated street features such as hand rails, ramps, steps, and grinding rails that can be arranged in different configurations. The skatepark is located adjacent to other active recreational activities in PowderWorks Park on the south side Bob’s Hollow Lane and across the street from Pioneer Middle School. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be skateboarding.
