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 acquisition of 106 acres and 5,260 lineal feet of river frontage provides the second phase of a major regional park on the south fork of the Nooksack River. When completed, this park will have over five miles of river frontage and approximately 700 acres of uplands for camping, fishing, and day use. A property owner donated half the value of the land to Whatcom County.
