BOLTON, N.Y. (AP) - A town in upstate New York is receiving more than $360,000 in grants to improve a park.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (https://bit.ly/1MOXh17 ) that Bolton won a $362,000 matching state grant for the fourth phase of Rogers Memorial Park. The Warren County project on Lake George is aimed at improving connections between the lakefront park and nearby businesses in the village of Bolton Landing.

A new visitor center is being built along with new restrooms and storm water improvements. Officials hope the project will be completed by June.

The latest grant was announced last month at the Regional Economic Development Council awards ceremony. It will go toward improving pedestrian essentials, such as pathways. It will also help fund infrastructure upgrades as well as dock renovations.

The town previously won a matching $350,000 state grant in 2013.
