Lummi Nation Community Park – Phase 1

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 Lummi Nation will use this grant to build the first phase of the Lummi Nation Community Park, a 7-acre park with two multipurpose fields and support facilities. The park is at the gateway to the Lummi Nation community on the southeast corner of Slate Road and Haxton Way. Development will include parking, backstops, drainage and irrigation, dugouts, batting and pitching machine enclosures, scoreboards, fencing, paved parking for people with disabilities, a paved trail, a paved spectator court, and the beginning of landscaping. The Lummi Nation will contribute more than $1.7 million in cash and potentially a grant from the state Youth Athletic Facilities program.
