The Enhance Iowa Board has awarded Community Attraction and Tourism grants to projects in Hawarden and Sibley.

The Sioux County Nature Center in Hawarden had requested and received $600-thousand dollars towards their four-point two million dollar project.

The two-story nature center at Oak Grove Park will include a meeting room, office space for conservation staff, exhibit spaces and classrooms for educational programming.

The Sibley Aquatic Center had requested and received $250-thousand dollars towards their two-point-five million dollar facility.
That project includes the rehabilitation and expansion of Sibley’s existing swimming pool.

The aquatic center will feature a new splash pad and other pool improvements plus a remodel and rehabilitation of parking, the concession stand, and the bathhouse, and replacement of the existing clubhouse with a new facility to host community events.
