FREMONT — The State Controlling Board has approved the release of $60,416 to Rodger Young Park located in Fremont.

This funding was allocated as a part of the NatureWorks Project which was established in 1993. Since the inception of the program over 2,300 projects have been completed throughout all of Ohio’s counties, according to State Rep. Gary Click, R-Vickery.

This $60,416 allocated to Rodger Young Park will be used to relocate youth soccer fields while also constructing two new baseball diamonds.

“I am pleased to see NatureWorks funding coming to Fremont, Ohio, to help improve the parks in our community while also encouraging members of our community to get out and enjoy our parks and recreation areas,” Click said.

 These projects were among 115 others that were awarded by the State Controlling Board on Monday and they amounted to $5.2 million in funding.
