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.
VancouverParks and Recreation used this grant to acquire 2.4 acres formerly owned by the Vancouver School District, located in one of the older established neighborhoods of downtown Vancouver. The property serves as a neighborhood park and is fully developed. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity provided is for active play, picnicking, and walking.
