Prairie View Park Expansion

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 project has been completed with the construction/renovation of two ball fields – one little league and one softball, as well as walking path, additional parking, road frontage and sidewalk/pathways, landscaping, irrigation, fencing, portable restroom enclosures, dugouts, backstops, spectator seating and sand volleyball courts. A scope amendment also added the construction of two new pickleball courts which have also been completed. Our sponsor match exceeded the original amount and all reimbursements have been paid. With the final billing that has been submitted our retainage remains as the only reimbursable.
