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 Lake Stevens will use this grant to build a half-mile pathway and parking area in Frontier Heights Park. The City will build the 10-foot wide circular pathway along the perimeter of the 6.2-acre park as well as improve the drainage, add landscaping, and install benches and picnic tables. The proposed park is the only neighborhood park on the northwest side of State Route 9. Lake Stevens will contribute $126,149.
