Osprey Park Basketball Court Cover

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

In 1997 the youth of Sultan banned together and approached the City Council requesting the City to provide property for a basketball court, and the youth would raise the money to build it. After two years raising funds throughout the community, a 64′ X 90′ basketball court was built. Part of the project was IAC funded; the lighting and surround amenities. This application to IAC is to build a 72′ X 96′ cover for the court to provide year round play for Sultan’s youth.
