Clarion commissioners support park project

From staff reports

The Clarion County commissioners this week signed a letter of support on behalf of the Clarion Blueprint Community for a community park and playground in Clarion Borough.

The Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program state grant will support the Second Avenue Multi-Generational Park project.

“Phase one of the park project is expected to begin at the end of the summer. Infrastructure and site development work will be the first step in bringing the park to Clarion,” a Blueprint Committee news release said.

“When the park is fully completed, it will contain such features as a playground, sports courts, splash pad/ice skating area, walking path, pavilion, outdoor games, restrooms, and plenty of green space.”

The park will be owned and operated by Clarion Blueprint Community. The Second Avenue park project is the current main focus of Clarion Blueprint, which also helped bring Clarion River Brewing Co. and Regency Commons, the new senior living facility operated by the Clarion County Housing Authority, to the borough.

The organization also is exploring other projects in the area, the release said.
