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 Kenmore will use this grant to renovate two grass ballfields to artificial turf, improve and expand a parking lot, install a maintenance shed, and develop accessible pathways and amenities on approximately 3.5 acres of land at Saint Edward State Park. Saint Edward State Park is a 316-acre state park located on the northeast shoreline of Lake Washington at 14445 Juanita Drive NE in Kenmore, King County. This project will allow the City of Kenmore to enhance and expand playability, improve safety and create an accessible sport facility. The primary recreational opportunities provided by this project will be baseball and soccer.
