INDIANAPOLIS — A major development has been made in gaining funding for a park honoring an iconic Indianapolis civic leader.
The National Parks Service is providing $750,000 to help with the construction of the Rev. Charles Williams Park in Indianapolis.
Earlier this month, Call 6 Investigates detailed how the park established in 2015 had nothing at the site, despite a blueprint established nearly five years ago.
The new grant is expected to help with playground equipment, a performance shelter, and trails.
Although, the project is still in need off a half-million dollars.
The park was meant to celebrate the life of Reverend Williams, who led the Indiana Black Expo until his death in 2002 due to prostate cancer.
