Van Lierop Park Playground

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 City of Puyallup will use this grant to develop a farm-themed playground at Van Lierop Park, formerly the Van Lierop bulb farm. The playground will serve children ages 2 to 12 and will be accessible to people with disabilities. It will feature two barn play structures as well as a tractor and swings to honor the farming heritage of the Puyallup Valley. Puyallup will contribute $299,857 in cash and a local grant.
