The Bruderheim Lion's Club has accepted a very large cheque from the provincial government.
 
A $175,000 grant will go towards the creation of a multi-generational community park in the town.
 
The community park will consist of a spray park and a skate park.
 
"Things like this attract newcomers," said town councillor, George Campbell. "People want a place that they can take their children for entertainment. That can happen through the community park."
 
The grant comes after significant advocacy efforts by the Lion's Club to secure provincial funding for the park.
 
Fundraising for the project has been going on for approximately three years.
