Givens Park

Initial Request and Grant Award

In March of 2022, a Port Orchard middle school student attended a Planning Commission meeting to share a presentation and petition with more than 200 signatures with a wish for a futsal court in Port Orchard.  The Planning Commission and City Staff were moved by the student’s initiative and wanted to identify any potential locations to fulfill this need. The Givens Park basketball court was identified as the ideal facility for the upgrade. The project is located at the corner of Sroufe St and Tacoma Ave. The existing facilities include a basketball court and two tennis courts. The facilities are deteriorating and need improvements.

After reviewing this student’s request in conjunction with an update to the City’s Parks Plan, the City applied for grant funding from the Washington State Recreation Conservation Office (RCO).  The City was successful in its efforts and received a Youth Athletic Facilities Grant for the project (Project 22-1588).  The total project cost is estimated at $294,000 and the RCO will contribute up to $176,400 towards the project.  The remaining project cost will be the responsibility of the City.
