Wilkeson Roosevelt Park

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 Town of Wilkeson will use this grant to purchase and install new playground equipment and engineered wood fiber ground cover, create ADA pathways and parking areas, and level the play field. Older sidewalks will be replaced for ADA access. In the play field, the town will remove the old concrete that obstructs safe play, add topsoil and hydroseed. The primary recreational opportunity provided by this project is active play.
