LP to start planning for Linglestown-area parks

Main pavilion at Koons Park

Gazette readers have an opportunity to weigh in on plans for local parks Wednesday evening.

Earlier in the year Lower Paxton Township accepted a state grant for the preparation of a master plan study for the future development of two parks – Wolfersberger Tract, which would become a new community park, and Koons Park, which would be upgraded. The 93-acre, unimproved Wolfersberger Tract is located on the east side of Wenrich Street east of Linglestown and the 33-acre Koons Park is in the village of Linglestown.

The township formed a committee to select a planning firm to create the master plan for future development of the two neighboring parks. The committee interviewed a number of firms and selected Norristown-based landscape architecture firm Simone Collins to develop the plan. This firm previously prepared the township’s Greenway Plan which serves as a guide for the development of walkways, bikeways and trails in the township.

Under the terms of the grant, planning must be completed by next summer and will include four public meetings.

The first meeting to gather input from citizens will be held Wednesday, Oct. 24., 7 pm at the township Municipal Center. (map)
