George & Hazel Stein Neighborhood Park

Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

The Vancouver Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to buy land to expand a future neighborhood park. The land is north of Mill Plain Boulevard in an older, underserved neighborhood. The City bought .77 acre in 1975, and an adjoining landowner donated a .8 acre, which then triggered a time-sensitive opportunity to buy another 1.9 acres for further expansion. The new purchase will give the city 3.5 acres for a future neighborhood park. Vancouver will contribute $238,077 in park impact fees and a donation of land.
