Toppenish Pioneer Park Improvement

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 Toppenish Parks and Recreation Department will use this grant to renovate and increase access to facilities at Pioneer Park. Located in south central Toppenish, Pioneer Park is the largest park in the city and experiences a high volume of use. The City will demolish the restroom and install a new one, preserve the basketball court with surface treatments and new markings, build a pathway to the ball field and bleachers that will be accessible to people with disabilities, and add a shade structure above the playground equipment, benches, and a picnic shelter. Toppenish will contribute $99,051 in cash, equipment, staff labor, and materials.
