Construction on the many improvements to McLaughlin Run Park are nearing completion. At last night’s Council Meeting, the Borough Council authorized the rental of the two new picnic shelters. They are at a reduced rate of $35 for residents as they currently do not have electric service like our other shelters.
Recent improvements to the park include an improved entrance, parking areas, paved access road and trail, new picnic shelters, new skate park equipment, landscaping, and other site amenities such as a water fountain and flagpole.
McLaughlin Run Park has a basketball court, tennis / pickle ball court, skate park, playground, volleyball court, restrooms, horseshoe court and three picnic shelters.
The former baseball field has also been lowered to serve as a flood mitigation tool to serve the community. Once the grass grows in completely later this year it shall serve as a passive all-purpose field.
