Upper Mount Bethel Recreation
Upper Mount Bethel Township will receive $375,000 to build a community park on a 90-acre parcel of land donated by Reliant Energy. The project includes paving for parking lots, the construction of athletic courts and fields, playground installation, trail paving and landscaping.
Grucela said the project is expected to help the township meet the needs of the growing soccer, baseball and softball leagues, and add courts for the basketball and volleyball programs. Construction is scheduled to be completed in June.
