Peace River Regional Directors approved a $4,255 grant request for the Mile 22 Community Park Association at their July 15 rural budget meeting.

The funds will be used to help pay $1,755  insurance and utilities, alongside $2,500 toward the replacement of a new heater in the skate shack and the purchase of materials for a new base liner needed for the outdoor rink.

The non-profit looks after the Mile 22 Park which is located in the Lebell Subdivison of Electoral Area D. The park has a ball diamond, playground area, heated outdoor skating rink, horseshoe pits and picnic grounds all used by residents for frequent recreation. 

The Lebell Subdivision and park is located on the old Alaska Highway - and cannot be accessed from the south due to the closure of the Kiskatinaw Bridge due to sliding activity.
