Edgewood Community Park: Phase 1

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 Edgewood has used this grant to develop and construct Phase 1 of a new 18-acre community park – officially named Edgewood Community Park. Phase 1 includes a 0.6-mile loop trail, inclusive destination playground, picnic shelter, grass amphitheater, 4-stall restroom, and multi-use programmable general purpose field. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are both passive and active.
