DULUTH, MN — Funding has been secured to improve the Lincoln Park infrastructure.
Funds will be used to improve parking, upgrade playground equipment, and restore the more than 100-year-old pavilion.
The money will also be used to fix walking paths, which were damaged during the 2012 flood.
Officials say they hope the improvements will be a benefit for everyone.
“We know that recreation and open green space can help remedy some of those health disparities and just give everybody the opportunity to get outside and connect with our programming and with nature,” said Lisa Luokkala with Duluth’s parks and recreation department.
Of that $2.1-million, $750,000 comes from a grant.
The rest comes from donations and the city’s tourism tax fund.
