On Tuesday, Nov. 16, the township held its final open house to get public input on what the 61-acre park should have that other parks don’t.

“You know my kids don’t have a hard time finding a place to play basketball, right? They don’t have a hard time finding a place to play soccer. Finding a good walkable trail with some depth to it with lots of nature around it, that’s tough,” Jean Foschi, Upper Allen Township resident and county commissioner, said.

Other suggestions for the park include activities for seniors and a barn for events. Plus, a stable for horses.
