Kim announces $250K for Reservoir Park in Harrisburg

HARRISBURG, Nov. 18 – State Rep. Patty Kim, D-Dauphin, today announced that a $250,000 grant will be awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to rehabilitate and further develop Reservoir Park in the city of Harrisburg.

“I’m so happy we get the chance to make real change with this new grant,” Kim said. “This money will be used for ADA access to promote inclusion and integration of public spaces that we can all enjoy. In addition, I look forward to the installation of nature play equipment and safety surfacing. This will ensure that our children get to play and grow up in a safe playground environment.”

Rehabilitation and development of Reservoir Park will include construction of pedestrian walkways, installation of nature play equipment with required safety surfacing, ADA access, landscaping, project sign and other related site improvements.

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.
