Ohio OKs Grants For Outdoor Recreation Improvement
Ohio has approved state and federal grants to help develop and improve public access for outdoor recreation facilities across the state.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources approved and will administer the NatureWorks and Land and Water Conservation Fund grants.
The department has recommended that more than $2 million in NatureWorks grants and more than a $500,000 in grants from the conservation fund be awarded to communities across the state.
Officials say the grants will support the acquisition of more than 30 acres of green space, the development and improvement of 28 playgrounds, 11 shelters and gazebos, nine park restrooms and dozens of other local improvement projects.
The NatureWorks and Land and Water Conservation Fund grants provide reimbursement assistance for acquisition, development and rehabilitation of recreational areas.
