WEST CHESTER (September 18, 2018)– State Senator Andy Dinniman announced $300,000 in state funding to support three greenways, trails, and recreation projects in Chester County.

“These grants will help build on our Chester County tradition of preserving open space and providing top-notch parks and outdoor recreational opportunities for residents and families,” Dinniman said.

The projects, financed under the Marcellus Shale Legacy Fund, were approved today by the Commonwealth Finance Authority. They are as follows:

  • $50,000 for the Borough of Phoenixville for playground improvements at Reeves Park.
  • $125,000 for East Fallowfield Township for improvements to East Fallowfield Park.
  • $125,000 for the Land Conservancy for Southern Chester County for acquisition to expand the White Clay Creek Preserve.

The Marcellus Legacy Fund, established under Act 13 of 2013, allocates funding for the planning, acquisition, development, rehabilitation, and repair of greenways, recreational trails, open space, parks and beautification projects.

The program is funded by impact fees assessed on every well drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale formation.
