Renovations coming to area parks

This summer, when school lets out, there is no shortage of activities for the children of Butler County area.

Over the past few months, towns across the county have been hard at work both renovating existing attractions or building new ones in time for summer.

Cranberry Township

Those who drop by the UPMC Passavant Graham Park Sportsplex in Cranberry Township this summer for some exercise will find some major changes from last year. Since March 13, the courts at the Sportsplex have been closed for a major renovation project.

Slippery Rock

A relatively new take on an ancient game, disc golf has taken the town of Slippery Rock by storm, and now residents have some new holes to play with the opening of a public nine-hole course.

Penn Township

Last spring, Penn Township purchased a 17.5-acre parcel adjacent to Harcrest Park, and the Parks and Recreation Committee has spent the past few months mulling over how to use it. Currently, the township is collaborating with the engineering firm Herbert, Rowland & Grubic on a draft plan for the renovation of the public facility.

Seven Fields

During summertime, Seven Fields Town Park Pool is one of the few places Butler County kids can go to cool off. By the time it opens this summer, both the pool and the surrounding park will have gotten a much-needed renovation.
