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.
The City of Lynnwood used this grant to renovate South Lynnwood Park. Redevelopment at the 4.2 acre park included an expanded playground, new picnic shelter, park furniture, restroom upgrades, a bike station, tennis courts, handball/racquetball court, native planting areas with interpretive sign, walking paths, parking, and new entry signs. The primary outdoor recreational opportunities provided by this project will be active and passive recreation.
