Tri-Municipal Park Groundbreaking Ceremony

Event Date: 
Saturday, August 11, 2018 - 11:00am to 1:00pm

To:  Community Members and Local Representatives

            You are cordially invited to attend a special groundbreaking ceremony on Saturday, August 11th, 2018, at 11 o’clock a.m. that officially observes the commencement of construction on the Tri-Municipal Park.

            The ceremony will last approximately 30 minutes.  A light lunch will be provided following the ceremony, as well as an opportunity to tour the parklands.

            In 2007, Gregg Township, Potter Township, and Centre Hall Borough formed a municipal arrangement and purchased 165 acres from Penn State University with the help of a DCNR grant.  This property is located in Potter Township along Upper Brush Valley Road, 0.25 miles west of Centre Hall Borough across from Sammis Greenhouse.  The purchase agreement stipulated that the municipalities were to use/develop this land for citizens as a multi-municipal park known as Tri-Municipal Park.  This park will be a recreational opportunity for the Penns Valley Region, including the school district.  The purchase of this land was consistent with recommendations of the Centre County Comprehensive Plan, the Penns Valley Regional Comprehensive Plan, the Upper Penns Creek Watershed Assessment, the Spring Creek Rivers conservation Plan, and the Centre County Natural Heritage Inventory.

            We look forward to celebrating this important milestone with you.

Sincerely,

Tri-Municipal Park, Inc. Board of Directors
