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.
Yakima Parks and Recreation will use this grant to renovate Randall Park, located in the central part of Yakima, within Yakima County. The goal of the renovation is to enhance and restore this 40-acre, 60-year old park. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project will be for passive recreational opportunities. This will be accomplished by renovating the following features: natural area, duck pond, pathways, bridges, basketball court, parking and restroom. Additionally, a new picnic shelter and playground will be installed.
