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.
The Town of Twisp in Okanogan County has used this grant to renovate a baseball field and a soccer field in the Twisp Sports Complex, a 10-acre area at the south end of town. The project has re-oriented the sports fields to accommodate simultaneous play, and install new natural turf, bleachers, backstop, dugouts, irrigation and drainage. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is youth athletics. The project has been completed.
