Category Overview

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.

Project Highlights

This project in Grant County developed and improved an existing recreation area for five surrounding communities. A one-mile multi-purpose path links all of the park’s facilities. An existing ballfield was renovated, and a new field added. Playground equipment was upgraded to accommodate children with disabilities.
