New playground equipment added to Decatur landmark

The city of Decatur will receive $200,000 through the Land and Water Conservation Fund to help construct a boundless playground in Delano Park.

The announcement was made by U.S. Representative Bud Cramer today.

"Delano Park is a jewel for the City of Decatur and the addition of a boundless playground, along with the splash pad opened last year, only adds to its community value," said Cramer.  "This funding will go a long way towards making the park more accessible for all to use."

The Land and Water Conservation Fund was created by Congress in 1964 to help local communities acquire and develop public outdoor recreation areas and facilities.

The LWCF is administered by the National Park Service.
