Stan & Joan Cross Park Phase 1

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

Pierce County Parks and Recreation Services will use this grant to build the Stan and Joan Cross Park, in the Frederickson community in central Pierce County. The County will build a large playground, a grassy playfield, picnic areas, a parking lot, and a plaza in this first phase of development of this 64-acre park. This park will be the first public park in the 26,000-person Frederickson community in the heart of Pierce County’s unincorporated urban growth area. Project design was possible thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Friends of Stan and Joan Cross Park, which pledged $15,000 to support this grant application. Pierce County will contribute more than $1.1 million in cash and donations of cash.
