SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A $300,000 grant has been approved for a proposed park in Sioux City.

The Vision Iowa Board approved the grant Wednesday for the Cone Park project, which is estimated to cost about $4 million and is set to feature a tubing hill and an ice rink.

The award is contingent on the city raising an additional $16,684 in the next 90 days.

The city had applied for a $318,000 grant in December from Vision Iowa, which is an Iowa Economic Development Authority program.

Matt Salvatore, the city’s parks and recreation director, said a website has been created to help raise the remaining funds. The completion date for the park is anticipated for December 2017.
