The Kootenay Lake Outdoor Skate Park Society will be the recipients of a $400,000 provincial government grant. The City of Nelson applied for the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development's Community Recreation Program in December. Mayor John Dooley found out that the application had been approved on Tuesday. "I think it's fantastic," said Dooley. "How often do you get a project like the skate park or any other project where the bulk of the funding is allocated from the province. It's a huge boost to that project. There is no turning back now."
