Valley Falls State Park Foundation receives $10,000 in LEDA funding to build new outside classroom, pavilion


FAIRMONT, W.Va. (WV News) — Del. Guy Ward, R-Marion, and officials from Valley Falls State Park shared their excitement with the Marion County Commission Wednesday morning over a new outdoor classroom and pavilion that’s set to be built at the park thanks in part to Local Economic Development Assistance (LEDA) funds obtained through the state Legislature.

“There was some money I knew I could probably get my hands on through the (LEDA) fund, so I put in a request for $10,000 to build this pavilion,” Ward said. “It went through the House finance chair, the speaker of the House and the governor, and they all approved it, so we got the money.”
