The City of Chehalis will use this grant to renovate Recreation Park, near Interstate 5. The City will replace the failing irrigation and drainage systems that serve the four ball fields, replace sod, upgrade the surfaces, and improve pathway. The City also will replace the 25-year-old playground with one accessible to people with disabilities. The 50-year-old park has many needed upgrades and this is one to keep the fields more playable during wet weather, which now causes too many canceled games due to flooding and wet fields. Chehalis will contribute more than $1.5 million in cash, a grant from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, and donations of cash.
