ALTOONA – Logan Township will receive a nearly $200,000 grant through the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s (DCNR) Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to revitalize and further develop a park, Rep. Lou Schmitt (R-Blair) announced today.

A comfort station and a rain garden will be built at Leopold Park through the grant. In addition, walkways and a pedestrian bridge will be renovated, play equipment, bleachers and utilities will be installed and other improvements will be made.

“Leopold Park, which is already enjoyed by many residents, will be improved through this investment in our community, opening it up to more people,” Schmitt said. “I am glad DCNR recognized the need to improve this treasured recreational site in the district.”

In addition, Blair County will receive a $127,500 grant to further develop Fort Roberdeau Park. Work under the grant includes the construction of a comfort station, walkway and parking area, as well as other park improvements.

The grant program assists local governments and recreation and conservation organizations with funding for projects related to parks, recreation and conservation.
