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 Wenatchee will use this grant to renovate Lincoln Park, an 18-acre park located in South Wenatchee. The project constructs a BMX pump track in an underutilized portion of the park, adds a group picnic shelter, replaces the outdated playground, adds a splash pad, improves the efficiency of parking areas, adds trees, and constructs a new stage to better utilize the park. Access will be improved through walkway overlays. The primary recreation opportunities provided by this project will be both passive and active recreation in a local park setting.
