Rep. Bradford announces $250,000 for Perkiomen Township Park development project

WORCESTER, Jan. 16 – Pennsylvania House Majority Leader Matt Bradford today announced $250,000 for a park development project in Perkiomen Township, Montgomery County.

"A community park is an important landmark for a community, providing recreational opportunities for our neighbors and a greenspace to preserve our natural resources. This funding will go toward the development of a much-needed park in a community that currently lacks sufficient recreation space," said Bradford, D-Montgomery. "I'm grateful that the state is investing in Perkiomen Township's park project."

Perkiomen Township was awarded a $250,000 Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program grant for the construction costs associated with the development of the Highlands/Huber Park along Salem Road. This project involves site preparation, the construction of two parking areas with ADA access, walkways, a pedestrian bridge, a pavilion, and a nature-based playground, planting of 40 trees and construction of a rain garden with bioswale and plantings to address erosion issues.

Funds distributed through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development's Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program go toward projects that involve the development, rehabilitation and improvements to public parks, recreation areas, greenways, trails and river conservation.
