Lynch Park

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

This project involves acquisition of a 9-acre neighborhood park located in a heavily developed residential area of west Vancouver. The park will serve the Northwest and Lincoln neighborhoods that have a population of 5,455. In terms of recreation need, this is one of Vancouver’s most under-served areas. This property provides the last opportunity in the service area to acquire a site of this size. The project site consists of a gently sloping meadow with extensive views of the Cascade Mountains. Future improvements will include sports fields, play equipment, picnic tables, viewpoint, trails, and restrooms.
