Wilson Creek Park Renovation

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.

Other repairs and painting will be done also. The children’s swing and slide will be repaired or replaced. The restrooms will be renovated and repaired. Two broken picnic tables and BBQ grills will be replaced plus 6 new sets installed. Landscaping will be improved by planting 24 new trees and the installation of an underground irrigation system.
