Springbrook Creek

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

This project involves the acquisition of two parcels totaling 23.78 acres for a future passive park. The property includes heavily forested upland, pasture, a pond, and Springbrook Creek. The acquisition enhances stream protection for the City’s adjacent watershed and extends Springbrook corridor three miles to the Black River riparian forest.
