Pioneer Park Ph. 1

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

This grant supported initial development of 10 acres on an 85-acre site park site. Site was purchased by the city in 1988 to provide a large sports complex for athletic fields, as well as open space and access to the Deschutes River. Phase I development built a soccer field, one ball diamond, restroom, paths, parking, picnic sites, underground utilities, and lighting for paths and parking.
