Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick presents a $35

Provincial grant to help Lake Country’s Pioneer Park

District park gets $35,000 grant for improvements to playground equipment

Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick has delivered a $35,000 grant to the District of Lake Country, in support of improvements to Oyama Pioneer Park Playground.

“By prudently managing the province’s finances, we were able to identify funds from within existing budgets that can provide this one-time support,” says Kelowna-Lake Country MLA Norm Letnick. “Pioneer Park is enjoyed by many local families, and it’s important that we maintain a fun, safe play area for kids.”

One-time grants provide needed short-term support for projects and activities that help various groups in our communities.
