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 redeveloped Evergreen Playfield #1, located in central Mountlake Terrace. Site preparation included cultural resources, permits, topographical survey, geotechnical survey, tree removal, and existing lighting demolition. Drainage, sub base material, LED lighting with remote access, synthetic turf and infill material were installed. Additional development included removal of existing asphalt surrounding field and pouring a new walkable surface which was accomplished via change order due to the condition of existing asphalt surface. Black vinyl fencing and backstops were installed surrounding the field. An ADA pathway was installed to allow access to the field from 56th Ave. W. Additional street parking stalls were lined along 56th Ave. W. All disturbed areas were restored with a hydroseed application. Total project costs increased due to contractor increases in lighting and field development by over $500,000 due to Stormwater manual changes that increased costs for drainage and geotechnical surveys/PIT tests, as well as lighting changes that necessitated adding two additional poles.
