Keller Community Park

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 Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation will use this grant to redevelop Keller Community Park, which is on the eastern side of the Colville Reservation, in Ferry County. The National Park Service built this popular campground in 1946 and it’s in serious need of renovation. The Tribes will build a new restroom, pathways, and a campground road and improve the campsites. This is the first phase of the redevelopment effort. The campground serves hunters, anglers, and Lake Roosevelt National Recreation visitors throughout the year and is the only place to camp on the eastern shore of the Sanpoil River Arm. The Tribes will contribute $115,500 in cash, staff labor, materials, a local grant, and donations of labor.
