Pond 1, 2, 3, and 6 Toilet Replacement

Category Overview

The State Lands Development and Renovation category provides funding to two state agencies to repair, renovate, and develop outdoor recreation facilities on existing recreation lands. As the popularity of outdoor recreation increases in our state, these grants help address overcrowding, ensure our outdoor amenities are safe for public use, improve visitor experience, and allow more people to enjoy our great outdoors.

Project Highlights

The Department of Fish and Wildlife will use this grant to replace toilets at Ponds 1, 2, 3, and 6 in the Sunnyside Wildlife Area in lower Yakima County. Located near the population centers of Yakima County along Interstate 82, these public access sites are popular for many anglers, wildlife viewers, and boaters. The restrooms do not accommodate people with disabilities, are a safety risk, and are well past their life spans.
