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 Othello will use this grant to develop a new destination outdoor recreational area in Lions Park. Comprising nearly one acre, the project will replace the current play area with ADA-compliant, appealing, and safe play equipment and surfacing. The primary outdoor recreational use will be youth active play. The scope of this project is more fully described in Federal Agreement awarded under Grant No. P22AP00060-00 (53-00751) attached in PRISM under RCO Project Number 20-1363.
