LBSRP Given $6 Million For Further Improvements

The statewide “Restoring the Finest” initiative announced Thursday that Lake Barkley State Resort Park (LBSRP) would be receiving approximately $6-million to make more improvements.

The funding will be utilized to make upgrades to the wastewater treatment system, replace roofs, and improve the fire alarm and sprinkler system. With the announcement, LBSRP will have been given more than $7.7-million for improvements since 2016.

The “Restoring the Finest” initiative has been given $88-million since 2016, with Parks Commissioner Donnie Holland noting state parks faced $240-million in deferred maintenance before the initiative began.
