Clarion County was awarded a $192,800 Community Parks, Small Community and Partnership grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, according to Senator Scott Hutchinson and Representative Donna Oberlander.
The county was awarded the funding for improvements to Clarion County Park in Paint Township. The project includes construction of a pavilion, installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and fencing, ADA access, landscaping and other related site improvements.
“This grant represent a sizeable investment by the state in the development and improvement of Clarion County Park,” Senator Hutchinson said. “The improved recreational facilities at the park, such as a new pavilion and the playground equipment, will provide new opportunities and improve the quality of life for everyone in the Clarion community.”
“Clarion County Park is deserving of these funds, as it is a wonderful place for activities in central Clarion County,” Oberlander said. “The park has grown considerably over the years, and this grant will allow officials there to make necessary upgrades for both safety and accessibility. I thank the county and its staff and volunteers for applying for this highly competitive grant and all the work they put into making this a great facility in our area.”
