The City of Moulton soon will be able to improve its city park thanks to an $11,754 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority.

The grant, along with $2,938 in local matching funds, will allow the city to make improvements to Moulton Community Park, including adding seating, adult bench swings, pet waste stations and cigarette disposal urns.

Moulton City Administrator LuAnn Rogers said the improvements will enhance the park’s quality and provide additional options for large gatherings held at the green space.

“We are excited to be able to improve the park, and this addition will give people another place to get together and talk,” Rogers said.

Currently, the park features a pavilion, barbecue grills, picnic tables, a pond, playground equipment, spots for RV hookups and more.

“We are really grateful to LCRA for providing this grant funding,” Rogers said. “It means so much to our community.”

The community grant is one of a number of grants recently awarded through LCRA’s Community Development Partnership Program. The program provides economic development and community assistance grants to cities, counties, volunteer fire departments, regional development councils and other nonprofit organizations in LCRA’s electric and water service areas. The program is part of LCRA’s effort to give back to the communities it serves.

Applications for the next round of grants are due July 31. More information is available at
