PUD Provides Grant For Klindt Cover Park Expansion

A grant from Northern Wasco County PUD will help complete Phase 1 of plans to expand Klindt Cove Kiwanis Park.  At their June 4 meeting the PUD’s Board of Directors awarded $16,000 to the project through their economic development grant program.  The grant will allow Phase I completion through the addition of site seeding and irrigation.  The Port of The Dalles, Northern Wasco County Parks & Recreation, and The Dalles Kiwanis are collaborating on the expansion project.  The Port has donated a bit over one acre of land for the expansion project, which will include more picnic and activity areas.   A $70,000 Oregon Parks grant will provide much of Phase 1 funding.
