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.
Pierce County Parks & Recreation will use this grant for the first of a multi-phase development and renovatation project at the Sprinker Recreation Center property. Phase 1 will encompass approximately 20 acres of the 44-acre park and will include multi-purpose synthetic turf ball fields, entry plaza, community event lawn, playground, spray park, sport courts, picnic shelters, site furnishings, renovation of existing restrooms, and a trail connection to the Parkland Community Trail. These improvements will expand athletic recreation opportunities, passive recreation opportunities, and non-motorized trail use. The primary opportunities provided by this grant will be active and passive recreation. The scope of this project is more fully described in Federal Agreement awarded under Grant No. P21AP12378-00 (53-00754) attached in PRISM under RCO Project Number 20-1389.
