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.
Develop a 16.8 acre parcel with 1000′ feet of frontage on the Mashell River. This project will help preserve the fishing pond for the annual Kids Fishing Derby. Proposed improvements include: clearing and paving the access road, paving the parking lot for up to 45 cars, providing picnic areas, developing nature trails, creating open play areas, constructing a restroom facility, installing new signs with current park standards, installing trash receptacles, and landscaping portions of the park. This park project provides for possible future connection with the Pierce County Regional Trails System.
