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 Olympia will use this grant to construct a sprayground at Woodruff Park, located at 1500 Harrison Ave. NW in Olympia. Development will include the construction of the sprayground facility along with the remodel of an existing park restroom/utility building to support the sprayground. The project will also include construction of a covered picnic shelter, accessible walkways and accessible parking. Other elements include perimeter seating, utility relocation, irrigation and landscaping modifications and park furnishings. The primary recreation opportunity provided by the project will be active aquatic and local park outdoor recreation.
