Volunteer Park Development

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 Selah will use this grant to develop a currently undeveloped 5.3 acre parcel into a universally accessible park located in the City of Selah in Yakima County. This project will be the first of its kind in Yakima County. The primary recreation provided by this project is for active recreation. This will be done by creating a universally designed fully accessible playground, a 9-foot wide paved walking path around the perimeter of the park, workout stations, disc golf course, a paved parking lot, gazebo, and restroom.
