VANCOUVER, Wash. – The Parks Foundation announced the recipients of its Community Grant Awards at the foundation’s June 9 annual meeting and luncheon. Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation’s community gardens program received $5,100 to fund the addition of one new community garden at Haagen Community Park and introduce neighborhood food gardens in several neighborhood parks. Ridgefield received $4,515 for its Abram’s Park Gee Creek Trail Improvement Project which will provide a defined route and surface enabling the community to enjoy the natural beauty of Abrams Park and Gee Creek in Ridgefield. And $8,000 was awarded to Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation’s Everybody Plays!
