Miller: $17,500 awarded for master-site development plan of Hamilton Park

HARRISBURG, Nov. 14 – State Rep. Dan Miller, D-Allegheny, announced the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources approved a $17,500 state grant Thursday to fund a development plan for Hamilton Park in Castle Shannon Borough.

“Hamilton Park continues to be a destination hub for outdoor activities and family gatherings,” Miller said. “This grant is significant in that it will allow our community to plan for the future and maximize the park’s potential so that families near and far can enjoy all Hamilton Park has to offer.”

Miller said the funding will foot the bill for a prepared master site development plan for the 12-acre park.

The grant was among dozens awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources on Thursday through its Community Conservation Partnerships Program.

The program 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.
