Kentucky State Parks Foundation Awards Grants for Trail Improvements

ky state parks 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (4/20/14) — The Kentucky State Parks Foundation has awarded matching grants to two Kentucky State Parks for trail projects.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports state parks and various projects in the parks.

“We appreciate the support we receive from the Kentucky State Park Foundation,” Parks Commissioner Elaine Walker said. “These grants will go to projects that will offer more recreational opportunities to our guests and the citizens of the Commonwealth.”

The foundation awarded a $2,500 grant to Nolin Lake State Park at Mammoth Cave for a .5-mile section of the Brier Creek Mountain Bike Trail that will be used by cyclists. This section will be designed to minimize the amount of pedaling and braking required by cyclists.

Nolin Lake has a campground along the lake, picnic area, playground and boat ramp and is popular for boating and fishing.

Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park in Gilbertsville received a grant of $1,167 to help restore two miles of hiking trails that lead from the park’s convention center to the marina and riding stables.

Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park sits near the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area. The park at Gilbertsville features a lodge, cottages, marina, campground, golf course, convention center and full-service restaurant.
