King County Parks is thrilled to be part of the El Centro de la Raza community as a key funding partner in their effort to build a community gathering place. The Youth Sports Facilities Grant program awarded El Centro $64,000 to purchase a new playground which was dedicated June 9th, 2011. Donations, volunteer labor and professional services matched the grant to complete the project valued at well over $100,000.
