Daley announces $219K grant for Miles Park projects

WHITEMARSH TOWNSHIP, Dec. 30 – State Rep. Mary Jo Daley, D-Montgomery, announced a $219,000 grant has been awarded to Whitemarsh Township for development projects at Miles Park.

Work at the park will include building a pavilion, basketball courts and pedestrian walkways; installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and lighting; ADA access, landscaping, and other improvements.

“After 20 years, the playground at Miles Park is getting the upgrade it deserves,” Daley said. “It’s important to provide children with outdoor play spaces amid the COVID-19 pandemic. These upgrades ensure children and families can safely enjoy the outdoors for years to come.” 

Daley said the funds are part of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources grant program, which pulled from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund to award this grant.
