Ercolini Property Development

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

Seattle will use this grant to develop .53 acre in west Seattle as a neighborhood park. The land was purchased in 2005 to serve an area with no other parks within a 1-mile radius. The park will serve a densly propulated neighborhood and is accessible via major bus routes. Now, Seattle seeks to open the area for use. Development will include keeping a large portion of the grassy area as a sunny play meadow and installing play equipment and a plaza with tables, and benches.
