We Did It!
CLERMONT, FL (October 20, 2021) - The Clermont Arts & Recreation Center has been selected as one of two winning projects in the 2021 Niagara Perk Your Park Contest from Niagara Bottling in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA).
The Perk Your Park Contest is an initiative that focuses on park and community space revitalization across the country. Improvements to Clermont’s Arts & Recreation Center will include a community garden, nature playspace, covered seating area as well as other ways the Clermont community can connect with the outdoors.
“We’re thrilled to support the development of a community garden in Clermont,” says Kristen Venick, Director of Niagara Cares. “It was exciting to see the community come together to vote for this project and we look forward to the enhancement of Clermont Arts & Recreation Center.”
“Park and recreation professionals work tirelessly to provide their communities with essential infrastructure that improves the health and well-being of their communities,” said Kellie May, NRPA Vice President of Programs and Partnerships. “This renovation grant will invest in critical infrastructure for this community.”
As one of the winning park projects, the Clermont Arts & Recreation Center will receive a renovation worth $90,000. You can find more information about the renovation and the Niagara Perk Your Park contest at www.NiagaraPerkYourPark.com.
