Elmer Thomas Park eligible for federal grant

LAWTON, Okla._The city of Lawton is in the running for a grant for Elmer Thomas Park from the National Park Service.

It's the only project from Oklahoma to be considered. The grant is part of the Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership, and is worth $500,000. The city would use the money to complete concrete walking trails and lighting at the park, as well as new restroom facilities. The city also learned this week that the McMahon Foundation has agreed to provide its own grant of $250,000 to the project, if the national grant comes through, and if voters approve the sales tax proposal this month.

That proposal includes $500,000 for the city's Parks and Recreation Department.
