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 project is for the acquisition of property along the shoreline of Commencement Bay and Foss Waterway in Tacoma for public access. This project is part of Tacoma’s work to establish public parks and access along Ruston Way. The path and parks are very popular, providing access for events such as fireworks displays on the Fourth of July.
