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 aquisition is to acquire 6.8 acres of waterfront property for the first park in West Poulsbo. This area is a growing, multifamily and single family neighborhood, with a stretch of commercial development through the middle. The site offers a significant opportunity to enhance shoreland and upland habitat areas. This will include improvements to the Liberty Bay/Dogfish Creek aquatic habitat with interpretive signage; protecting water quality; providing areas for small recreational (non motorized) watercraft; providing a missing link to the footpath around Liberty Bay; and creating an area for other passive activities including picnic areas, playgrounds, and parking.
