Springwood Park Renovation

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

The City of Kent will use this grant to redevelop the 10-acre Springwood Park on the southeast hill of Kent. The City will expand the children’s play area and add walking paths, a community gathering space, a shelter, picnic tables, open lawns, barbecue grills, stormwater infrastructure, a sports court, and benches. The primary recreation opportunity provided by this project is active play.
