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 Monroe will use this grant to buy 5 acres for a community park in the North Hill neighborhood. The site is under significant development pressure and has an owner who is motivated to sell. Monroe will contribute $334,809.
