The Drumheller and District Chamber of Commerce through the World’s Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund presented the Drumheller Association of Skateboarding Enthusiasts (DASE) with $25,000 on Tuesday, June 9, 2015 for construction of the skate park.
“The Chamber of Commerce is pleased to present these funds and honour our commitment that was made back in September 2012, when plans for the skate park were first beginning to take shape,” announced Heather Bitz, Executive Director of the DDCC. “With our operation being located next door, we clearly see what a popular destination Centennial Park is for locals and visitors, alike. The skate park will nicely complement and enhance the existing amenities of Centennial Park.”
The World’s Largest Dinosaur Legacy Fund invests a portion of funds generated by the World’s Largest Dinosaur attraction and giftshop to enhance and enrich community economic development initiatives in the Drumheller region. To date the Legacy Fund has contributed over $555,000 to an array of worthy community group projects.
Non-profit community groups are invited to submit applications for WLD Legacy Funds semi-annually. The next application deadline for projects less than $3,000 will be September 1, 2015.
