Local park slated for improvements

Hillcrest park improvements

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Mayor Nic Hunter has announced that Lake Charles is one of 10 cities nationwide to be selected by the National Recreation and Parks Association to receive a grant.

The planning began three months ago when Hunter announced the new ‘Partners in Parks’ initiative. The goal was to re-invigorate city parks without having to raise city tax dollars.

Today a grant of $225,000 was awarded to the city to enhance Hillcrest Park in east Lake Charles. This was done as a part of the National Recreation and Parks Association “Great Urban Parks Campaign”
