John Storvik Spray Park & New Restroom

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

Although it took us longer to complete this project, we were able to do so before our agreement end date. We were able to complete all of the task on the project that we planned for. We installed a new restroom building, improved walk ways and access road, added additional lighting to the park, landscaped around the playground and spray pad area and installed a spray pad with a combination of both above ground and in ground water features and added a sign out of a sea kayak. We had to make a change in the plans to where we pull water from for both the spray pad and the restroom. Instead of pulling water from the 29th street side of the park, we tapped into the water line coming off 32nd street.
