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.
This project will address an existing and future demand for a unique camping experience. The project will develop a portion of 15 acres of waterfront property to furnish utilities to seven recreational vehicle sites. Five yurt campsites will be developed to provide alternative year round camping opportunities. Each yurt site will be furnished with a picnic table, fire ring and power. A restroom building with adjoining picnic shelter and a unisex, accessible single shower room will also be constructed. The park currently offers boating, beach walking, field sports, picnicking, bird watching, ship watching, kite flying, facilities for family reunions, and club camp outs.
