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 Lynwood will use this grant to renovate South Lynnwood Park within the City of Lynnwood, in south Snohomish County. Development at the 4.2 acre park will include a playground, a picnic shelter, park furniture, restrooms, a bike station, tennis courts, a native plantings area with an interpretive sign, walking paths, parking, and new entry signs. South Lynnwood Park is located along the regional Interurban Trail and in the heart of the South Lynnwood neighborhood, which is the City’s most underserved area. The park development will reconnect the community to their local greenspace, promote active lifestyles, and encourage community connections.
