BYRON CENTER, Mich. (AP) — The National Park Service is giving money to a pair of West Michigan parks to increase accessibility for people living with disabilities and expand and improve facilities.

The funding for Cutler Park in Byron Center and Meinert Park in Muskegon was recently announced by U.S. Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin.

The $98,785 for Cutler Park and the $31,284 for Meinert Park are courtesy of the National Park Service's Land and Water Conservation Fund. The fund seeks to safeguard natural areas and water resources.
