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.
The City of Buckley will use this grant to develop a new neighborhood park, the Miller Neighborhood Park, on A Street in Buckley. The City will build a gravel road and parking lot and install a playground, storm drainage, picnic shelter, trail connection to a nearby residential development, tables, and benches. Future development phases will add restrooms, and basketball and volleyball courts. Buckley will contribute $202,233.
