Lads & Lassies 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

The existing playground equipment in this 1/6 acre neighborhood play lot is unsafe and does not meet ADA requirements. This project will replace the equipment with up-to-date play equipment and add an accessible, safety surface.
