VANCOUVER, Wash. —

The city of Vancouver will have enough money to begin construction of its Waterfront Community Park on the former Boise Cascade waterfront area, thanks to $1 million lawmakers set aside in the state's new capital budget.

The 8-acre park and additional public infrastructure will connect visitors to the city's downtown area and to the Waterfront Renaissance Trail that runs east of the Interstate 5 Bridge. The Waterfront Community Park will be built on the southern portion of the 32-acre former industrial site.

The $1 million in state money will cover most of the cost of the park and other public infrastructure. City officials expect to break ground on the park next year and have it completed by 2014.
