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 Gig Harbor will use this grant to develop Phase 1B at the Gig Harbor Sports Complex. The Pickle-Bo Spot will be approximately 3.4 acres and is located on an undeveloped parcel north of the YMCA parking lot on Harbor Hill Drive. The project includes pickleball courts, bocce ball courts, playgrounds, an event lawn, a sheltered performance stage, two covered picnic areas, and associated parking. The primary opportunities provided by this project will be active and passive recreation. The scope of this project is more fully described in Federal Agreement awarded under Grant No. P22AP00173-00 (53-00758) attached in PRISM under RCO project No. 20-1746.
