By Sentinel News Service 
Published July 21, 2022





Earlier this month, California State Parks announced that Foisia Park will receive $4.25 Million in Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) matching grant to construct a new amphitheater, picnic area, exercise stations, pedestrian pathway, baseball and athletic fields, playground, restroom and parking lot. 


“California State Parks is excited about the potential to provide California’s communities with resources to meet their recreation needs,” stated California State Parks Director Armando Quintero.  


“Everyone has a right to the enjoyment and benefits of spending time in the outdoors. The Land and Water Conservation Fund helps provide recreation opportunities for everyone.” 



The department evaluated more than $116 million in LWCF funding requests for the available $45 million in this application cycle. Since 1965, the grant program has provided funding to cities, counties, eligible districts and state agencies to create outdoor recreational resources.  


State parks serve an important role as the administrator of the LWCF Program through its Office of Grants and Local Services. Staff work with the National Park Service who administers the program at the federal level. The recommended applicants will proceed with post-selection federal requirements prior to the projects being forwarded to the National Park Service for review and federal funding approval. 


“These proposed projects expand opportunities to enjoy the outdoors,” said California Secretary for Natural Resources Wade Crowfoot.  


“From improving nature trails and picnic areas to restoring habitats, these projects advance partnerships between state, local, and federal governments to improve outdoor access to parks and open space for all Californians.”
