Orchard Park Development

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

The City of Liberty Lake will use this grant to buy 11 acres in the fastest growing part of the city, the River District area, and develop Orchard Park. The City will install outdoor exercise equipment and a play structure for all ages and abilities, and build a spray park, multi-sport courts and fields, an amphitheater and pavilion, restrooms, picnic shelters, and a community garden. The City also will build multi-use park trails that will connect to the regional Centennial Trail just to the north of the park. Finally, the city will build parking, plant shade trees, and install park furnishings. There are no city parks in the immediate area. Liberty Lake will contribute more than $1.9 million in cash and donations of equipment and land.
