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.
Puyallup will use this grant to buy 72 acres for a community park in southeast Puyallup. The land is the last available site in the Puyallup Valley that will accommodate a community park. When developed, the park will have athletic fields, play equipment, and a connection to Puyallup’s Riverwalk Trail and Pierce County’s Foothills Trail.
