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 City of Vancouver will use this grant to acquire 2.7 acres to expand, and for future development of, a neighborhood park. The site is located north of Mill Plain Blvd. and east of NE 97th Avenue in an older neighborhood of the city. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is passive day use.
