CLINTON, Ind. (WTHI) - The largest park in Clinton, Indiana will get some upgrades thanks to two grants.


Crews will start work in Sportland Park as soon as the weather and ground conditions improve this summer.

The first grant came from Duke Energy and totalled ten thousand dollars. That money will be used to create trails connecting soccer fields, softball fields and the playground area. Mayor Jack Gilfoy says white rock will be used. He hopes to have this project done by the Fall.

The city got a second, separate grant, totalling five thousand dollars. It will be used for new equipment.

Mayor Gilfoy says, "It's workout equipment, low impact, for adults, and we're going to put it in the kiddy playground area where when the adults bring their children to play there, it gives them something to do, too and it helps them interact with the kids and I think it will make everybody a lot happier."

The equipment was delivered in November and the mayor says he hopes to have this project done this summer.

The city will also finish work on the park restrooms so they can be opened.
