City seeking additional funding for Red Bridge parking

Park Rapids has received a Federal Recreational Grant for $68,932 to construct a parking lot at Red Bridge Park but is still seeking state funding to offset a local match.


City planner Dan Walker gave an update on the project at last week's City Council meeting.

The city purchased a vacant lot adjacent to Red Bridge Park in early 2011 for future construction of a parking lot. City staff also applied for a state Legacy Trails Grant but was not awarded funding.
