Grants Approved for Recreation Projects in Lower Burrell, Baldwin

roadState Sen. Jim Brewster said today that recreation and park projects in Lower Burrell, Westmoreland County and Baldwin Borough in Allegheny County have been awarded Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) grants totaling nearly $230,000.

“State resources redirected back to help local communities fund park and recreation projects are important and help municipalities in their redevelopment efforts,” Brewster said.  “Planning for future recreation and the preservation of open spaces, in addition to developing community parks are excellent uses of DCNR grants.”

  • Lower Burrell was awarded $19,000 to prepare a recreation and open space plan for the city;
  • Baldwin Borough will receive a $210,000 grant to help rehabilitate and further develop Elm Leaf Park. The project includes renovations, development of parking areas, dugouts, comfort stations, new play equipment in addition to other improvements.

The grants were part of third-round funding for Community Parks and Partnerships.
