Grant will save Vina town park

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA) — A grant will help with needed repairs that threaten to close the town park in Vina, Alabama because of safety concerns.

Wednesday, Governor Robert Bentley announced a $300,000 Community Development Block Grant to help the town make the repairs.

Town officials say a drainage problem is undermining the park and caused part of a paved walking trail to collapse.

They say erosion also threatens to destroy the concrete foundation of a pavilion and could eventually damage a tennis court and parking area.

To prevent additional damage, the town must replace a collapsed 36-inch underground drainage pipe and make other repairs.

Vina will contribute an additional $100,000 for the project.

Bentley says the grant is necessary to keep the park open because parks are a vital asset in any community.
