Warwick Township received a Community Conservation Partnerships Program Grant Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources
Warwick Township - Thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), the Township will move forward with Phase II of the Rehabilitation of Lions Park, which will include the construction of a hockey court, installation of playground equipment, and other related site improvements.
“The grant from DCNR makes it possible for the Township to rebuild a unique recreational facility”, said Warwick Township Manager Daniel Zimmerman.
DCNR is the primary source of state support for Pennsylvania recreation, parks, and conservation initiatives. Grant funding from DCNR assists hundreds of communities and organizations across Pennsylvania to plan, acquire, and develop recreation and park facilities, create trails, and conserve open space.
“Pennsylvania’s local parks, trails, and natural areas create many opportunities to be active outdoors. They define our communities and make them places where people want to live, work and play,” said Lauren Imgrund, director of DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. “Our grants help our local partners meet the vision they have for their communities and regions.”
Funding for the grants comes from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93), the Environmental Stewardship Fund (Growing Greener 1), and federal funding sources.
