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.
Skagit County Parks and Recreation will use these funds to further develop part of the Northern State Recreation Area. This project will consist of trail-head facilities including a restroom, fully developed parking area, accessible interpretive trail, entrance monuments, signage and picnic area amenities. The primary recreational opportunities include walking, horseback riding, picnicking, and other passive recreation.
