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 Marysville wil use grant funds to develop Olympic View Park located adjacent to the Ebey Waterfront Trail and the Qwuloolt estuary. The site will include new shoreline access within a community park setting. Construction elements include parking, restrooms, play areas, landscaping, signage and interpretation, and ADA compliant access route to the Ebey Waterfront Trail. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is active play and shoreline trail access.
