The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission has awarded a $500,000 grant to the city of Anna to construct Phase II of Slayter Creek Park. The grant funds along with a financial contribution from the Anna Community Development Corporation will be used to construct two additional lighted ball fields (to replace the un-lit fields), disc golf facilities, a splash pad, trail extensions, a 2nd multi-purpose field, gazebo, permanent parking area, and an addition to the skate park. Total construction cost is estimated at $1 million.
Funding for the Outdoor Recreation grants come from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) and the state Texas Recreation and Parks Account (TRPA). The Commission approved only two out of 26 Outdoor Recreation projects submitted by political subdivisions with less than 500,000 population that were eligible for matching funds from the LWCF program.
