Rozzi applauds $143K grant to develop Laurel Run Park

MUHLENBERG TWP., Dec. 30 – State Rep. Mark Rozzi today announced that Laurel Run Park in Muhlenberg Township has been selected to receive a $143,500 grant to go toward park renovations and additions.

The award will help fund the renovation of a parking area and access drive, the construction of pickleball courts, a multi-purpose field, a pavilion and pedestrian walkways, strengthening ADA access, landscaping and other related site improvements.

“This funding will go a long way toward ensuring community members of all ages and abilities have a safe and modern space to enjoy outdoor activities,” Rozzi said. “It’s highly rewarding to see state dollars at work right here in Berks County and going toward a project that truly benefits everybody.”

This grant is from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, an initiative administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Its goal is to support recreation and conservation organizations with projects related to parks, recreation and conservation.

More than 300 projects across the commonwealth received grants through this program. More information on DCNR grant programs can be found on the department’s website
