McCool “Robin Hill Farm”

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

Clallam County plans to acquire this large 155 acre beautifully maintained forest, open space, and wetland property as a regional county park. Its sheer size, central location, and vast inventory of natural resources make this site ideally suited for a wide variety of both active and passive recreation facilities. The project has widespread public support and is located in the fastest growing area of the county. Purchase of the Robin Hill Farm will meet the immediate existing needs for active sports fields (softball, soccer, baseball), year round trails close to home for hikers and horses, single and group picnic areas, tennis and outdoor basketball courts, horse and bicycle camping, as well as passive areas for viewing wildlife, wetland areas, and other natural features. This large site will meet existing needs with space to grow and meet future demands well into the 21st century.
