Mill Creek Receives $16K Grant for Disc-Golf Course
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Mill Creek MetroParks has been awarded a grant for $16,056 by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) for an 18-hole disc-golf course at the MetroParks Farm in Canfield Township.
The grant, through the 25th round of ODNR’s NatureWorks grant program, is providing 75% of funding for the project.
The disc-golf course will utilize the MetroParks Farm’s landscape, changes in topography, and scenic vistas to establish a unique recreational experience.
The construction of a disc-golf course continues the MetroParks’ effort to provide additional and diverse recreation opportunities throughout the county, and reinforces the MetroParks’ commitment of securing third-party funding for new active recreation facilities.
The project will be scheduled for construction as a 2019 capital improvement project.
