Pioneer Park Renovation 2016

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 Toppenish Parks and Recreation Division will use this grant to further develop and renovate the city’s largest and most popular park, Pioneer Park, in the south-central part of Toppenish. The City will resurface the basketball court, replace basketball hoops, add two child-sized hoops, build a restroom near the parking lot, extend a pathway to the ball field, add a shade-screen above the playground, and add eight benches around a pathway. Toppenish will contribute $143,275 in cash and donations of equipment and labor.
