Ciresi announces $400,000 for Limerick, Royersford park improvements

HARRISBURG, Nov. 14 – State Rep. Joe Ciresi, D-Montgomery, today announced that two $200,000 grants will be awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to improve parks in Limerick Township and Royersford Borough.

“This is the kind of influx of cash we need to make real changes happen in our communities,” Ciresi said. “This money will be used to make improvements to Limerick Community Park and Royersford’s Victory Park. Between the construction of a pavilion, installation of playground equipment, ADA access ramps, and improved walkways and parking, our parks will become the beacons of community activity they were always meant to be. These spaces will truly be open and integrated for all of the public to enjoy.”

Improvements to Limerick Community Park will include the construction of a pavilion, pedestrian walkway and parking area; installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and utilities; ADA access, landscaping, project sign, and other related site improvements. 

The rehabilitation of Victory Park will include construction of pedestrian walkways; installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and fencing; ADA access, landscaping and stormwater management, improved signage and other related site improvements. Ciresi announced an earlier $120,000 grant for the Victory Park ADA improvement project, which has a total cost of $448,500, in September.  

DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation assists local governments, recreation and conservation organizations with funding for projects related to conservation, parks and recreation, including conservation of open space, river conservation and access, and the planning, acquisition and development of public parks.
