Springbrook Park – safe place for kids!
Let’s expand Springbrook Park. Springbrook Park is located near the Joint Base Lewis McChord gate. This area is geographically isolated and extremely low income. Over 80% of the people who live in this area live in poverty. The low-income residents in our community are particularly in need of no cost options for family activities. Springbrook Park is a HEALTHY place to play and a Springbrook Park expansion project would add to the other healthy activities at the site. Opportunities and spaces for outdoor play are known to improve the quality of life for residents who live near them. Shared recreational activities can strengthen the family unit and reduce obesity. When a safe play area is created, families can visit the park together. They can walk, ride a bike, push a stroller or pull a wagon to the park which will encourage a healthier lifestyle. Expanding this park will create hours of active fun and provide new and safe opportunities for the children and families in this neighborhood area.
