HARRISBURG – A state Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program grant awarding of $65,000 will help with the rehabilitation of a park and the creation of a new dog park in Mount Holly Springs, Rep. Torren Ecker (R-Adams/Cumberland) announced.
“The aim of the Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program is to improve and expand recreational opportunities in Pennsylvania,” Ecker said. “The funding awarded to Mount Holly Springs helps to accomplish both tasks. I applaud the Commonwealth Financing Authority for recognizing the significance of these projects that residents will enjoy once complete.”
A portion of the funding will be used to rehabilitate the existing Trine Park, just off West Pine Street, with new playground equipment. Another portion of the grant will be used to create a dog park in the first block of Mill Street. The dog park, which is along a recently built walking trail, will feature an area surrounded by fencing to allow dogs to run around without a leash, as well as dog-friendly equipment.
Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program grants are for planning, acquisition, development, rehabilitation and repair of greenways, recreational trails, open space, parks and beautification projects.
