Phillips-Hill, Grove announce grant for Spring Grove Borough to improve community park

SPRING GROVE BOROUGH – Senator Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) and Representative Seth Grove (R-Dover) announced a competitively awarded $250,000 grant for Spring Grove Borough to assist in renovations to the Community Park.

Spring Grove Borough will use the funds as part of Phase 3 of the proposed renovations to add amenities to meet the growing needs of the community, including the construction of a restroom and concession facility, as well as a playground structure.

The borough also plans to add shade sails, a rain garden, and a pathway to connect to trails – both existing and future trails.

“The residents of the borough continue to use this community park and this expansion is a testament to the community’s vision coupled with increased usage by our neighbors,” Phillips-Hill said. “This park is also the host to one of the largest events in the region with Smoke in the Grove each summer. I am pleased to support the community by securing these competitive funds to improve this community resource through funds derived from the Marcellus Shale impact fee.”

“This investment in our community will help make an already heavily-used and beautiful recreational space even more enticing to residents,” Grove said. “The addition of these amenities will provide further opportunities for decades to come.”

The total project cost is $620,603 which, in addition to this grant, is funded by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the borough.
