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 Vancouver-Clark Parks Department used this grant to acquire 0.45 acres of land within the Rose Village Neighborhood, a densely developed low-income area within the City of Vancouver. Future development as a neighborhood park is planned.
