Play for All at Raab Park

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 Poulsbo will use this grant to construct a fully inclusive playground that includes new playground equipment and numerous sensory stations designed to accommodate physical disabilities and provide a sensory rich experience. The City will create a playground footprint that will feature a soft, padded synthetic surface and wheelchair accessible ramps. The new equipment will include specially designed pieces such as a wheelchair-friendly merry-go-round, inclusive teeter-totter, extra-wide slides, and swing seats. This project primarily provides an active recreational experience.
