Senator Henry M. Jackson Park Renovation

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 City of Everett used this grant to renovate approximately four acres of Sen. Henry M. Jackson Park. Standard concrete and pervious concrete pathways were installed ensuring compliance with ADA accessibility to all elements. New elements include open space, a basketball court, playground, benches, and community garden plots. Additional grant funding from the Washington State Department of Commerce helped fund new restrooms, a new picnic shelter, renovation of the old picnic shelter, picnic tables and a garden building located in the community garden. The primary outdoor recreation opportunity remains active play.
