Santa Delivers Playground to Borough

Borough of South Greensburg received a Community Conservation Partnerships Program Grant Award from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources

The Borough of South Greensburg, thanks to a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the support from the Community Foundation of Westmoreland County in conjunction with the Richard King Mellon Foundation started preparations for a $200,000 playground build that will take place in the spring at the site of the current Sheridan Avenue Playground. The playground will serve more people as an inclusive playground, thanks to the incorporation of ADA accessibility, composite recycled materials, a segmented tot and pre-teen area as well as a zip line.

“The new playground equipment will provide a safe place for our kids to get outside and play. I’m so glad that we are able to give the community the playground they deserve,” stated Kevin Fajt, Mayor. “Projects such as this playground would not take place if it was not for the outstanding support of our local businesses, Council, Recreation Board and our continued community support.”

DCNR is the primary source of state support for Pennsylvania recreation, parks, and conservation initiatives.  Grant funding from DCNR assists hundreds of communities and organizations across Pennsylvania to plan, acquire, and develop recreation and park facilities, create trails, and conserve open space.

“Pennsylvania’s local parks, trails, and natural areas create many opportunities to be active outdoors.  They define our communities and make them places where people want to live, work and play,” said Lauren Imgrund, director of DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. “Our grants help our local partners meet the vision they have for their communities and regions.”


Funding for the grants comes from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93), the Environmental Stewardship Fund (Growing Greener 1), and federal funding sources.
