Town of Farragut receives grant for Anchor Park improvements

The Town of Farragut is the recipient of a $325,000 2018 Local Parks and Recreation Fund (LPRF) grant that will be used for improvements at Anchor Park. Renovations will include a reconstructed and expanded restroom and entrance plaza, and ADA access to the diamond and recreational fields. Construction should start in middle to late 2019.

The grant, administered by the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) Recreation Educational Services Division, is funded by the state property recordation tax.

The LPRF grant program was established by the General Assembly in 1991 to provide local governments with funds to purchase land for parks, natural areas, greenways and recreational facilities. The funds may also be used for development of trails and projects in parks, natural areas and greenways. All LPRF grants require a 50 percent match by the recipient.

Grant recipients were selected through a scoring process with careful consideration given to projects that met the selection criteria and expressed the greatest local recreation need.

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
