Kenzie’s Landing

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 Wenatchee will use this grant to acquire 51.76 acres of natural open space, known as Kenzie’s Landing. The City will also construct a trailhead that includes parking, restrooms, water, picnic shelter, and other amenities. The property and trailhead will provide permanent access to over 18 miles of existing trails in this section of the foothills. It preserves critical trail connections and provides access between publicly owned properties and the community, and develops a trailhead to provide improved accessibility and amenities. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this grant are passive use and trail access.
