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.
The City of Enumclaw used this grant to renovate an existing sports field into a multi-purpose artificial turf field in the City located at the former King County Fairgrounds. This project expanded the field’s capacity for football, soccer and lacrosse. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project are for football and soccer, although significant use for lacrosse has also occurred. The development includes a multi-purpose synthetic turf field with a barrier free design pathway installed to and around the field from the updated barrier free parking updgrades, and signage. In addition, visitor bleachers have been updated, goal posts replaced and soccer goals installed. New scoreboards have been put in place. Not included in this grant, the restrooms have been updated and made ADA compliant.
