The park has netted a $75,000 grant to help restore the park’s beach front, including creating five acres of dunes and coastal wetlands.

RACINE — The beach restoration project at Samuel Myers Park has netted another grant.

On Wednesday, the Fund for Lake Michigan announced that it will be providing $75,000 to the city of Racine to help restore the park’s beach front, including creating five acres of dunes and coastal wetlands.

The Sam Myers project is just one of 27 projects the Fund will be supporting with a total of $1.9 million in grants this summer, a press release issued by the nonprofit states.

The restoration of Samuel Myers Park has been in the process for close to two years. It includes removing invasive plant species, adding native plant species and possibly creating walking trails and a boardwalk.

The project has already several other grants.
