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 Bermerton will use this grant to renovate Haddon Park. This will result in an enhanced muli-use sports court, new picnic shelter and accessible pathways, and renovated children’s playground, restroom and parking. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is active recreation.
