McClave residents will enjoy some new additions to the McClave Park beginning this spring.  Great Outdoors Colorado, GOCO, recently awarded Bent County $161,377.27 to bring some new amenities to the park.  Interested parties from GOCO, architectural and construction firms, Bent County Commissioners and McClave school board representatives as well as the grant writer, Kathryn Finau of KSF Strategic Services, attended a brief outdoors meeting at the site this past Monday morning, January 14, when the temperatures were far from spring or summer-like. 

Site for the New Building, Due East of Playground Equipment

Matching funds from Bent County and the Bent County Recreation District will be applied to the improvements which includes 30 by 60 foot covered pavilion with restrooms.  Other improvements include new picnic tables, exterior lighting, trash cans and grills and additional playground equipment.   

Many of the contractors are locally based in southeast Colorado.  The actual ground-breaking and construction work will be contingent on the weather.
