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.
Snohomish County has acquired 3.4 acres from the Edmonds School District to expand Esperance County Park. The goal of the project is to preserve public open space and develop new park amenities for the community. The primary recreational opportunity provided is passive recreation and community athletic facilities.
