Kiwanis Park Development

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

Mount Vernon will use this grant to develop Kiwanis Park. The park will include an extensive wetland trails system around a basketball court, a Little League field, a multi-purpose field, as well as a restroom, barbecue area, and picnic shelter. The park is in the center of the residential area of the city.
