Donatucci announces $250K DCNR grant for FDR Park

HARRISBURG, Nov. 14 – State Rep. Maria Donatucci on Thursday announced a $250,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has been awarded to FDR Park.

“I’m thrilled to see this money come to my district, to benefit a public space that so many Philadelphians and visitors alike enjoy,” Donatucci said. “Our public parks are such valuable spaces, any time we can put state funding into our public parks we’re providing a service to all those who use our parks for recreation.”

The grant will fund rehabilitation and further development of FDR Park, specifically geared toward construction of stormwater management measures; installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing; ADA access, landscaping, project sign and related site improvements.

The funding for the grant comes from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, administered by DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to assist local governments and recreation and conservation organizations with funding for projects related to parks, recreation and conservation.
