CARSONIA PARK DEVELOPMENT
Great news for our community! The Recreation Commission of the Antietam Valley was awarded over $277,000 in grant funding to expand and redevelop Carsonia Park, following the Master Plan completed last year.
Thanks to all of you who have been supporting AVCP’s work to raise funds to support the Master Plan—at our last meeting we pledged $20,000 for park improvements, bringing the total raised by AVCP to $33,000, which, in addition to funds provided by Mount Penn, Lower Alsace and the Water Authority, helped make up the match funding that made these applications possible. The Recreation Commission and the Water Authority are still waiting to hear about another round of grant applications, so keep your fingers crossed—we should know more in March. It’s a great day in the Antietam Valley!
Thanks to some very hard work by citizens and organizations in our community, including AVCP, we now have a Master Plan for the restoration of Carsonia Park and Crystal Lake. The plan calls for a reorientation of several major features in the park, as well as improvements to parking facilities, the Recreation Building and Crystal Lake.
