Manette Park Renovation

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 Bremerton used this grant to renovate Manette Park. Improvements included replacing the playground, restroom, picnic shelter, and sports court, and installing LED playfield lighting for a multi-purpose playfield. The renovations also included accessible walking paths and ramps throughout the site, ADA parking stalls, and new signage and landscaping. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is active play.
