Mayme Shaddock 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

The City of Napavine will use this grant to develop a covered shelter that includes a kitchen with restrooms at Mayme Shaddock Park, in the town center. The City also will build new pathways, making the park accessible to people with disabilities. The improvements make the park better able to serve the community as a gathering place for elementary school children, community events, weddings, and other celebrations. Napavine will contribute $86,503 in cash and donations of equipment, labor, and materials.
