Republic Skatepark

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 Republic will use this grant to buy and develop land for a skatepark near the Golden Tiger Trail and across from the Republic School Complex. This will be Ferry County’s first skatepark. The park will accommodate beginner, intermediate, and advanced skill levels for skateboarders, BMX bicyclists, scooter users, and inline skaters as well as a place for people to relax and spectate. The park will include two shaded viewing areas with benches and a bike rack. Republic will contribute $44,000 in a private grant and donations of labor and land or property interest.
