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.
Seattle Parks and Recreation will use this funding to develop the North Rainier Land Banked site, a new 1-acre park in the Rainier Valley of Southeast Seattle. This grant will be used to provide opportunities for picnicking, exercise and play. Funded elements include a fitness zone with exercise equipment, picnic tables, playground, circulation paths, and green space. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this grant are picnicking, fitness and active play.
