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 Kent is seeking funding to acquire the final remaining private holding at Clark Lake Park This acquisition consists of a single 17-acre ownership currently used for residential purposes and will complete the city’s assemblage of properties resulting in an 150 acre intact park. Clark Lake Park is a passive use park located on the East Hill of Kent. This park is surrounded by dense residential development. The addition of the 17 acre property will allow for completion of the loop trail with additional views of Clark Lake and will create unique opportunities for a more formal park use area within Clark Lake Park. The Primary recreation uses at this are walking, hiking, and birdwatching and other passive use recreation.
