East Image 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

Vancouver will use this grant to buy a 2.4-acre neighborhood park in a heavily developed residential area in northeast Vancouver known as East Image. The neighborhood is fully developed, and the property provides the only opportunity for a nearly 3-acre park in the area. The park would serve about 3,950 people. Future improvements will include open play fields, trails, children’s play equipment, picnic tables and a sports court.
