The City of Bremerton used a grant to renovate its 2.5-acre Manette Neighborhood Park, which has the city’s only public, lighted, grass, youth soccer field. The City developed walking paths throughout the park and built a multi-use sports court, restroom, and off-street parking for people with disabilities. The City also renovated the playfield with new energy-efficient light poles located farther from the field of play, which provides better coverage and spills less light into the neighborhood. Bremerton contributed $505,600 in staff labor, a grant from the state Youth Athletic Facilities program, and donations of cash from the Manette Neighborhood Coalition, Bremerton Soccer Club, and other individuals and community groups.
Grant Amount: $500,000
