Kasch Park Synthetic Turf Replacement

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

The City of Everett Parks & Recreation Department used this grant to renovate two soccer fields at Kasch Park. The synthetic surfaces were replaced and lined for multiple sports. The primary opportunity provided by this grant expanded play on two aging fields from soccer only to year-round, multi-purpose use for youth and adults – featuring soccer, lacrosse, ultimate frisbee, flag football, and kickball.
