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 Bremerton will use this grant to develop pathways throughout Haddon Park so people with disabilities can reach places in the park, including a playground, restroom, shelter, and multiuse sports court. Currently no part of the park is accessible to people with disabilities. The 4-acre park is an aging neighborhood park with pathways and a sports court. Bremerton will contribute $449,625 in cash, staff labor, a local grant, and a grant from RCO’s Youth Athletic Facilities program.
