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 Pasco will use this grant is to buy 13.12 acres to create a 17-acre community park. The land is in an area with no neighborhood parks and increased demand for new residential development. Once developed, the community park will provide walking trails, picnic shelters, playgrounds, a spray pad, sports fields, and tennis courts. The area contains many well-established trees. Pasco will contribute $292,865.
