2014-1219-splash-pad

A proposed spray pad or splash pad for kids, similar to this one in Atlanta, and a new restroom at Storvik Park are in Gov. Inslee’s proposed 2015-2017 state budget, which was released on Thursday.

The proposed state budget includes a $335,000 grant to the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition to help fund the $700,000 project. Under the city’s plan, the city would fund $182,000 and would raise an additional $150,000 in private donations to complete the project.

The city says it is confident this will be a very highly used feature and its construction will help meet the unmet need of free and safe recreational water access in the city. The current restroom is badly in need of replacement, according to city Parks Director Gary Robinson.

The 8.7-acre Storvik Park was built in 1974 and has a baseball field, basketball courts, playgrounds and a horseshoe pit.
