Silverdale Waterfront – Day Use Improvements

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 Kitsap County Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to complete the playground, replace the picnic facilities, and improve the landscaping in the Silverdale Waterfront Park. This is the second phase of the park’s renovation. In the first phase, the County replaced the 24-year-old deteriorated playground equipment as part of the overhaul of this stunning waterfront park. Kitsap County will contribute $180,000.
