Allegany Residents Will Play Ball and Take a Hike, Thanks to DNR Grant Funding

2 Allegany county recreation projects will benefit from about $60K in grant funds from DNR’s  Land and Water Conservation Fund.


The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Land and Water Conservation Fund provides 50% matching grants to state and local governments to benefit or acquire public outdoor or recreation facilities. To date, more than 400 projects have been funded in Maryland, totaling about $90M in funds.

A DNR Press Release recently announced two projects to receive grant funds in Allegany County:

Town of Barton — Hill Street Little League Baseball Field Improvements:
$32,750 will go toward rebuilding baseball dugouts, renovating bleachers, and improving the parking lot and access road.

City of Frostburg — Hoffman Park Trail and Nature Playground:
$27,000 will go toward constructing a new natural playground and additional natural trails.

Applications for parks and recreation grants for Fiscal Year 2021 through the Land and Water Conservation Fund will be accepted beginning Aug. 1.
