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 Grandview Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to design and install a splash pad with multiple features next to the city pool. The pool’s shallow end is too deep for small children and people of limited mobility. Building the splash pad will expand the opportunity for water-related recreation to people of all ages and abilities. Grandview will contribute $60,000 in donations of cash.
