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 Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation will use this grant to redevelop Keller Community Park, on the eastern side of the reservation in Ferry County. The Tribe will install a restroom, shower and pathways. The Tribe also will improve the roadway and lighting and upgraded the recreational vehicle campsites. The campground serves hunters, anglers, campers, and Lake Roosevelt National Recreation visitors year-round and is the only place to camp on the Sanpoil River Arm shore. The Tribe will contribute $87,920 in cash, staff labor, materials, a local grant, and donations of labor.
