Lions Park Splash Pad and Inclusive Playground

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 City of College Place will use this grant to develop a splash pad and inclusive playground at Lions Park. The project will also include development of accessible walkways, new picnic shelter, new restrooms, lighting, and new park signage. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be aquatic and inclusive play, as well as enhancements in park safety, access and aesthetics. The splash pad, inclusive playground, picnic shelter, and restrooms have all been identified as a priority in the 2018 Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Plan.
