CENTER – Rep. Josh Kail (R-Beaver/Washington) announces a $70,000 Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) grant for additional development of Morris Township Community Park in Washington County.

The funding will be used for the construction of a pedestrian walkway, fishing pavilions, a pedestrian bridge and stormwater management measures. It will also be used for ADA access, landscaping, project sign and other related site improvements.

“Since so many people are staying closer to home for vacations and recreational time, it’s important that our parks are in good condition. I’m glad the grant money is coming to the district, where it will be able to benefit families of all kinds,” Kail said. “During challenging times, people need to have ways to relax, and enjoying nature is a great, healthy way to do that.”

The DCNR grant program is funded with a variety of state and federal funding sources including the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund, the Environmental Stewardship Fund, the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund, Pennsylvania Trails fund, Pennsylvania Heritage Area Program and the ATV Restricted Management Account Fund.
