Green Lake Park Improvements – Ph. 1

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

This project in King County helps reconstruct and widen one mile of a multiple-use trail circling Seattle’s Green Lake. The facility is the state’s most popular and heavily used pathway. In addition, the Green Lake Community Center playground will be renovated to meet current accessibility and safety standards.
