SWPR Skate Park

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 South Whidbey Parks & Recreation District along with the Rotary Club of South Whidbey and Citizen volunteers plan to development a skate park at Community Park outside of Langley, WA. The skate park would be approximately 10,000 sq feet and have several obstacles ranging from pyramids, ramps, bowls and other smaller formations. The need for the skate board park developed when the towns of Langley, Clinton, and Freeland all passed laws prohibiting skateboards from town sidewalks and streets.
