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 Spokane Valley will use this grant to buy 44 acres near the Spokane River. This project will expand park space within city limits and provide water access and recreation opportunities currently unavailable in Spokane Valley. The site will provide environmental education, interpretive trails, and opportunities for new trail connections, picnic shelters, public beach areas, and more. Spokane Valley will contribute $977,764.
