HARRISBURG – Rep. Craig Staats (R-Bucks) announced today that Quakertown and Sellersville boroughs will receive more than $370,000 in state recreation and conservation grants for improvements to local parks.

“Quakertown Borough will receive a $250,000 grant for the long-awaited rehabilitation of Memorial Park,” said Staats. “Work will include installation of playground equipment with required safety surfacing, construction of a parking area and improvements to make the park ADA compliant. The project will also include landscaping, new signage and other site improvements.”

Improvements will also be made to Lenape Park in Sellersville Borough, which is receiving a $122,500 grant for renovations to the parking area and pedestrian walkways. The grant will also include construction of stormwater management measures, installation of fencing, ADA access, landscaping, project signage and related enhancements.

The funding was awarded in the third round of Community Parks, Small Community and Partnership Grants through the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

“This is great news for the citizens of Quakertown, Sellersville and surrounding communities,” said Staats. “These grants will significantly improve both parks and provide safer and more inviting recreational facilities for adults and children in our area.”
