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 Vader will use this grant to develop 0.62 acres at J.K. Werden Memorial Park. The project will include construction of a playground, concrete walking pathway, three small shaded picnicking areas, fencing, parking lot, entrance sign, and landscaping. The primary outdoor recreational opportunity provided by the project is active play.
