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 Mountlake Terrace will use this grant to convert Evergreen Playfield 1 to support baseball, fast pitch, soccer, rugby, lacrosse, flag football, Ultimate Frisbee, and other field sports. The City will install artificial turf, lighting, fences, and landscaping. Mountlake Terrace will contribute more than $1 million in cash, a private grant, potentially a grant from the state Youth Athletic Facilities program, and donations of cash.
