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.
The City of Olympia used this grant to acquire 59 acres of property to expand a community park/open space known locally as LBA Woods. The property is located in Southeast Olympia near Boulevard Road immediately adjacent to LBA Park. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project is passive recreation.
