CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Federal land and water conservation fund grants are heading to 11 community outdoor projects across West Virginia.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says the funding totaling nearly $585,000 will leverage approximately $1.2 million in federal, local and private funds, benefiting projects that will be enjoyed by a quarter million state residents.

The National Park Service provides the funds to the state for improvements to recreational areas.

The funding will support repairs to the Veterans Memorial Park pool in Summersville, accessibility improvements to the bathhouse at Wheeling Park and the construction of a rock-climbing attraction at the Tucker County Boulder Park in Davis, among other projects.
