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.
Evergreen Park shall receive its first major renovation in 85 years. It currently has old, tired equipment and structures with limited recreational opportunities. The major improved/new features in Phase 1 include: picnic shelters, basketball courts, sand volleyball court, expanded trail system, new playground equipment, and additional parking including a handicapped turnaround. These improvements will increase park usage improve safety, and provide recreational features and sites for today’s users as identified in surveys and public meetings with the community.
