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.
This 95.2-acre acquisition is centrally located within the Gig Harbor/Peninsula area of Pierce County within easy access of Highway 16. The site has a variety of gentle sloping grass meadows, open space/wetlands, small lake stocked with fish, and large forested areas-a site with great potential as a major regional park. This site could provide a multitude of recreational activities in one location without recreation enthusiasts having to travel across the Narrows Bridge to Tacoma or elsewhere to satisfy their recreational needs. The majority of the site (78) acres will remain virtually undisturbed for passive recreation. The remaining acreage will be developed for active recreational activities.
