The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.
he Department of Fish and Wildlife used this grant to renovate the Liberty Lake access site located east of Spokane at Liberty Lake in Spokane County. This project renovated the heavily used shore fishing platform for better accessibility. Improvements included new decking, benches, and railing, to meet current accessibility guidelines. The parking area was sealed and striped to benefit fishing and boating users. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project will be shoreline bank fishing, and water viewing.
