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.
The City of Burlington will use grant funding to create an inclusive playground at Rotary Park. Rotary Park was acquired via RCO grant in 1992, and is serving its people with opportunities for sports and play. Primary recreational opportunities will be playground facilities designed for any child or adult to connect with themselves, their peers, nature, their children, etc.. The project will feature a new ADA accessible restroom; innovative, accessible playground equipment; flooring that doesn’t limit mobility devices; thoughtful sensory integration; and more!
