Clark Nature Center Update

From the June 18, 2021, Newtown Parks & Recreation Report

  • "Healing the Planet Grant Program" grant opportunity from Pennsylvania Recreation & Park Society (PRPS) for park beautification. This program is funded by the Giant Food company and aims to build connections between community green spaces and families. Applications will be accepted for $2,500, $5000, $10,000, $15,000 and $25,000. Newtown Township currently fits the criteria for applying and the online process opens June 1st through June 30th. There is no matching funds required. The department will focus on dead tree cut down and trail mobility at Clark Nature Center. For more information, read "Can We Open the Clark Nature Center Trails?"
  • Met with Advanced Tree Services to walk through Clark Nature Center. They will be sending a quote for trail maintenance and tree pruning/cutting down that will substantiate the grant funds. If we are unable to secure the grant, this will be useful for the 2022 budget
  • Met with Delaware Valley Insurance Trust (DVIT) to walk around the active parks and assess the trails, buildings, playgrounds, etc. This was done earlier than in years past so we will have time before budget discussions to secure some quotes.
