Lovers of Cascade Park are again hoping to turn their enthusiasm for the nature preserve into cash to rejuvenate the popular family spot.For the second time, Cascade Park is in the running for a grant through Coca-Cola. This is the third year for the American Is Your Park campaign, which awards recreation grants of up to $100,000 to help restore, rebuilding or enhance American parks. The grants are made possible by the Coca-Cola Live Positively initiative.
The voting runs until July 15. The winning parks will be announced in August.
The voting uses social media. According to the rules, a person can vote online or on their smart phone at LivePositively.com/parks, where each action will trigger one vote. The park also can earn 100 votes each time a person “checks in” from the park via Foursquare, an online locating program. You can vote as many times as you like.
