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 City of Bremerton will use this grant to renovate the Warren Avenue Park. The City will replace existing lights on the sports field and will install a new backstop. Additionally, the project includes renovating and paving the existing parking lot, and restroom and construct a new children’s playground, picnic shelter, and pathways to all park amenities. When completed this park will provide both active and passive recreational experiences.
