Selah Skate Park

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 Selah Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to expand the Selah Skate Park by adding a half pipe ramp, a progressive pump track, picnic tables, and a path to make the park accessible to wheelchairs. With this expansion, the park would allow more skateboarding athletes and other wheeled athletes to use the park without feeling like the park is always crowded. The 13-year-old skate park is overdue for a remodel. Selah will contribute $45,000 in staff labor, materials, and donations of cash and labor.
