Envision walking along Johnston Run Streamside Trail, cross at Veterans Way to the Little League Park, cross the Stream on the bridge stopping in the middle to enjoy the view. Walk the path to Park Avenue and follow the alleys, visit Fendrick Library, visit the stores and restaurants at town center, continue along the picturesque alleys and end up in the Lions Club Park and enjoy the Fitness Trail. The Lion's Club Park will be the location for our future Mercersburg Skateboard, Dogpark, and Playing Fields*
IMAGINE A NEW PUBLIC SPACE
An energized group of Public Space Advocates invite you to join them to bring a new and exciting public space to Mercersburg. Mercersburg Park Association is a 501c3 nonprofit social benefit group whose mission it is to see safe recreation for all in Mercersburg. We are creating a place for kids to play, and off-leash dog playground, sports fields and a skateboard park. Join us in our quest to create a space that provides recreation and opportunities for active play for all ages.
This is an ongoing project that will be an incredible contribution to our community. Local sports teams are invited to help develop soccer and football practice fields at the planned park. Check out and like Skate Mercersburg on Facebook to follow progress and get involved.
