PORT ANGELES -- The city of Port Angeles is inching closer to a new waterfront park, to be built as part of the downtown waterfront improvement project.
The city received more than $300,000 grant from the State Recreation and Conservation Office, meaning it is only a few hundred thousand dollars away from the project taking off.
City Community and Economic Development Director Nathan West says this grant helped significantly.
West says there are still pending grants to help finance the rest of the project. One of the grants could cover up to $200,000.
The West End Park would be located west of Oak Street at the edge of the project to spruce up the waterfront. West is hoping it will bring more curb appeal to downtown.
West reiterated that this project is just one phase of a larger picture for the downtown area.
Once the rest of the funding is secured, the park will be built in stages.
