Community Park Haverford Reserve Update

Page 5

Community Recreation/Environmental Center In June, the Board of Commissioners approved the architect’s Design Plans for the Community Recreation/Environmental Center. Bid documents are scheduled to go out in October or November. Groundbreaking on the 35,000 sq. ft. facility will most likely take place in December or January.

Geothermal Grant Acquired In addition to the $1,000,000 in economic redevelopment grants already acquired from the Governor’s Office of the Budget with the assistance of our State Representative and State Senator, the Township was successful in acquiring a $300,000 grant from the Pa Department of Energy to fund a geothermal system for the Community Center. These funds along with the Haverford Reserve funds will pay for construction of the facility. In addition, the geothermal system will greatly reduce the carbon footprint and save $2,000,000 in energy cost over the next 30 years. Dog Park Progress on the Dog Park continues. The park is scheduled to open in November (see page 13). If you would like to get involved with the ‘Friends of the Dog’ please contact Eileen Mottola at A ‘Friends’ meeting will be held in late October to help in planning the operation of the park.

Trails The South Brook, PECO and Athertyn Trails are open. Walkers can experience the beautful setting while improving their health. The Meadow Trail is partially complete. The Darby Creek Trail will open in Fall 2011.

Green Site Check out the Township’s website for our Green Page listing green initiatives and tips.

Residents from the Quadrangle enjoyed a tour of the trails at Haverford Reserve

Freedom Playground

Freedom Playground is almost ready to open. The committee has worked hard to raise funds for the safety surfacing. Look for information on the website for the Grand Opening festivities targeted for early November. Thanks to the hundreds of people who worked to build this great playground.
