Support Your Parks & Programs
Contribute to the quality of life in your neighborhood and invest in green, open spaces. Each year, we receive many applications for financial aid for youth wanting to attend after-school programs or participate in our enrichment programs. With your help, we can offer more scholarships to families who qualify.
Donating Goods & Items
For structural items such as playground equipment or non-structural items such as bark chips for a planting bed, please email our Parks Division or call 360-442-5221. We will evaluate the request and your Donation Application. The Longview Parks and Recreation complies with all pertinent standards and safety regulations, especially for children's play areas, so we are restricted in what we are able to use.
For recreation items like board games, sports equipment, and computer/gaming consoles please email the Recreation Division or call 360-442-5400.
