Long Lake Park Improvements

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The Kitsap County Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to remove, relocate, and replace outdated playground equipment in Long Lake Park. The County also will build a pathway accessible to people with disabilities across the park to the lake, connecting parking, the community center, playground, restrooms, and a swimming beach. Kitsap County will contribute $125,000.
