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.
This project involves the acquisition of 40.9 acres for a community park providing access to the Skagit River. Future development will meet local and regional needs. A landowner donation was part of the local match for this grant.
