Healthy Places of Lamar has received a $10,000 grant from Huddleston-Butler Memorial Foundation to fund the Skatepark Construction Project at Willow Creek Park. The grant will be used to leverage more funding to complete the project. 

“Our community considers a skatepark to be a top priority in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan. We are so grateful for this funding, which will get us closer to bringing a dream come to life for Lamar. We will continue to look for other funding opportunities. However, our community has the opportunity to be a part of this project, and we encourage the community to participate through volunteering or donations,” said Renee Beebe, Healthy Places coordinator. 

The grant will continue the work of Healthy Places, a community-led initiative to create a healthier and more active community through infrastructure improvements and programs – providing opportunities for everyone in Lamar to be healthy.
