Village of Crossville Wins Grant

The Village of Crossville’s Tiger Park will be getting an upgrade soon.
$324,047 will replace the outdated facilities and enhance the park with ADA-accessible sidewalks, parking spaces, and restrooms. The grant will also be used to update the pavilion with a new wiring system, and pickleball courts will be added to attract more individuals to Tiger Park.
The funding for this grant comes from the Park and Recreational Facility Construction Act (PARC) grant program, a bipartisan from Governor Pritzker’s Rebuild Illinois Capital Improvement Program.
State Senator Terri Bryant of Murphysboro stated, “This PARC grant for Tiger Park is a transformative opportunity for the Village of Crossville. This funding will help revamp the park’s community space. The modernization of Tiger Park will create a more vibrant and accessible recreational area that everyone can truly enjoy.”
The PARC grant program provides up to 90% of project costs to help build, renovate, and improve recreational buildings used by the public or purchase land to be used for public access and recreational purposes, with local governments matching the value of the grants awarded.
