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.
This project will provide an exciting recreational opportunity for Port Townsend youth. A permanent skate park facility will be constructed in place of the temporary skate park in use since 1994. The design will double the size of the park and incorporate a variety of elements. Additional amenities include bike racks, a drinking fountain and landscaping.
