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.
This 50-acre acquisition is located in a rapidly urbanizing area, four miles east of the City of Vancouver. The site is adjacent to property owned by the Evergreen School District that will be developed for schools. Future development may include picnic tables, ballfields, children’s play apparatus, trails, restrooms, and parking.
