The city of Columbia will receive $113,900 toward construction of a splash pad. The project proposal also includes adding fencing, landscaping, rock, a sidewalk, lighting and the renovation of an existing restroom at the city park on Fairground Street.
The grant was part of more than $3.4 million for 41 projects announced by Gov. Andy Beshear on Monday. Funding comes from the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
LWCF is a federal program designed to protect important natural areas, help local communities acquire land for outdoor recreation spaces and to develop or renovate public, outdoor recreation spaces such as campgrounds, picnic areas, sports and playfields, swimming, boating or fishing facilities, trails, natural areas and passive parks.
