Springettsbury Township received a $130,000 grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to rehabilitate Augustus Schaefer Park on Lynbrook Drive.

The grant will go to improving playground equipment, a paved walking trail, resurfacing of the basketball court and updating the park to be fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act, according to a news release.

"This grant is key to the Township’s and resident’s efforts to upgrade this historic park with a minimal impact to the Township budget,” said Township Supervisor Charles Wurster. “The caring residents of this neighborhood worked hard to make their wishes for improvements known. I look forward to completion of the renovations in 2020.”
