Recreation Park Renovations and Upgrades – LP

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 Chehalis will use this grant to renovate Recreation Park on 13th Street by building a new Penny Playground, improving drainage to the entire park, and creating two new parking areas, one along the west side of the park next the railroad tracks and one on the north side of the park next to the playground. This is the first of two phases of park renovation. The second phase will include new community buildings, an additional parking lot and connector drive linking parking lots, new picnic shelters, additional walkways, and landscaping improvements. Chehalis will contribute more than $1 million in council bonds and a grant from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund.
