Stronger Families. Stronger Communities. Stronger Washington

Over 70% of Washington residents annually participate in outdoor recreation generating more than $26 billion in consumer spending, over 200,000 direct jobs, $7.6 billion in wages and salaries, and $2.3 billion in state and local tax revenue.

At Mayme Shaddock Park with Washington Wildlife and Recreation Coalition; City of Napavine Staff, Mayor Shawn O’Neill, Mayor Pro-Tem Duane Crouse, and Public Works Director Bryan Morris to discuss recent Capital Budget/City of Napavine investments to improve Mayme Shaddock Park.

I am proud of our State’s investment in parks and outdoor recreation. In the 20th Legislative District, As the Assistant Ranking Member on the House Capital Budget Committee, significant investments have been made in parks and recreation in the 20th Legislative District:

  • $2.25 million for a pedestrian overcrossing replacement in Kalama;
  • $2.03 million for the Willapa Hills Trail Bridge in Adna;
  • $52,000 for the Seminary Hill Natural and Heritage Trail Project in Centralia;
  • $600,000 for the Woodland Scott Hill Park and Sports Complex in Woodland;
  • $259,000 for Mayme Shaddock Park in Napavine;
  • $283,000 for Werden Park in Vader;
  • $72.6 million to the State Parks and Recreation Commission for improvements to state parks statewide;
  • $875,000 for the Lewis County Regional Tennis and Wrestling facility in Chehalis;
  • $515,000 for a playground in Tenino; and
  • $155,000 for the North Trailhead restroom and covered shelter in Castle Rock.

Best of all . . . enjoying outdoor recreation as a family builds strong bonds and creates quality time together. Outdoor Recreation improves the physical and mental wellbeing of children and adults.

The State of Washington provides an abundance of opportunities to hunt, fish, jog, hike, camp, play. . . or just relax and soak up the natural beauty. I look forward to continuing our state investments in local communities to improve health, quality of life, and our economies.
