Whitehorse Park Restroom and Shower Building

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 Snohomish County Department of Parks and Recreation will use this grant to build restrooms and showers in Whitehorse County Park, near Darrington. The 83-acre park has ball fields, camping facilities, an off-leash dog area, amphitheater, and playground, and is the end of the soon-to-be-completed 28-mile Whitehorse Regional Trail, near Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest. Snohomish County will contribute $470,500.
