Roe announces $200K grant for New Garden park

Rep. Eric Roe (R-158)

Rep. Eric Roe (R-158) announced today that New Garden Township has been awarded $200,000 from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to further develop New Garden Park.

“The funding is to be used to construct parking areas, a driveway, walkways, a pavilion and basketball court; and install state-of-the-art playground equipment, and landscaping,” said Roe.  “These new improvements will benefit all township citizens and will be a wonderful addition to the park.” 

The CCPP program is administered by DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to provide financial and technical assistance to local governments, river and trail organizations, trusts, and other nonprofits for planning and development of park, recreation, conservation and greenway projects.

“I’d like to commend the DCNR – it does a wonderful job protecting and serving our state land and parks through its CCPP program,” said Roe.  “New Garden Township is a lovely place, and much of that is owed to the leadership of the supervisors and manager.  This grant will continue to add value to the area.”
