Wednesday, March 12, 2014

U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today announced support for Range Light Park in Presque Isle to increase accessibility for activities and expand and improve park facilities. The support comes through the National Park Service.

"Families across Northern Michigan visit parks like Range Light Park to enjoy the outdoors and relax," said Sen. Stabenow. "This support will make it easier for individuals with disabilities to enjoy the boardwalk and pavilion, improve access to Lake Huron for canoes and kayaks, and protect swimmers from boats."

"Our parks play an important role in our communities, providing space for recreation, sports, and relaxation," Levin said. "This funding will help to make Range Light Park an even better and safer space for the Presque Isle community."

The $60,000 grant comes through the National Park Service's Land and Water Conservation Fund. The National Park Service's Land and Water Conservation Fund seeks to safeguard natural areas, water resources and our cultural heritage, and to provide recreation opportunities to all Americans.
