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.
Acquisition of 75 acres of woodland south of Gazzam Lake on Bainbridge Island. Significant residential construction is planned nearby. Future park development may include ballfields, picnic areas and trails. The site is contiguous to the proposed Gazzam Lake Wildlife area.
