HARRISBURG – Rep. Joseph Adams (R-Pike/Wayne) today announced that Milford Borough and the Nature Conservancy in Shohola Township will be receiving grants totaling $400,000 and $195,100, respectively, from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).
“Improved parks are a key ingredient in revitalized communities, large and small,” said Adams. “I’m thankful Pike County will be awarded this highly competitive funding. Further developing these locations will benefit children, parents and the entire community.”
Funding comes from the DCNR Community Conservation Partnerships Program. The Milford Borough grant is for the rehabilitation of West Ann Memorial Park and will go toward construction of pedestrian walkways and parking area, installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and fencing, improved ADA accessibility, general landscaping and other related site improvements.
The Nature Conservancy grant will be used as payment toward the acquisition of approximately 130 acres in Shohola Township, Pike County, for an addition to State Game Lands.
