North Lynnwood Park Aquatic Playground

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

Lynnwood will use this grant to renovate the spray pool at North Lynnwood Neighborhood Park. The 35-year-old spray pool does not meet safety and accessibility standards. The existing concrete surfacing is cracking; elevated concrete structures are hard, slippery, and dangerous; concrete curbing limits accessibility; and constant maintenance is required. In spite of its deteriorating condition, the spray pool is popular in the summer, hosting about 200 weekly users. Birthday parties, summer camps, and family outings are planned around it every weekend. Innovative and thematic new aquatic playgrounds have been designed to increase playability and improve safety and access. High quality and low maintenance materials will be installed. The new aquatic elements are programmable for interactive use, and designed for all ages. Lynnwood will contribute $793,769 in donated labor and a local grant.
