HARRISBURG – New Wilmington Borough is the recipient of a $80,000 Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP) grant to be used to improve its municipal park, Rep. Parke Wentling (R-Crawford/Erie/Lawrence/Mercer) and Sen. Elder Vogel (R-47) announced Tuesday.

“This funding is to be used to construct an amphitheater at New Wilmington Municipal Park,” Wentling said. “This new venue will benefit all borough citizens and will be a wonderful addition to the park.”

“I am excited to see this grant money awarded to New Wilmington,” Vogel said. “The residents of the borough and students of Westminster will have a wonderful new venue for live entertainment.”

The CCPP program is administered by DCNR's Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to provide financial and technical assistance to local governments, river and trail organizations, and trusts, and other nonprofits for planning, acquisition and development of park, recreation, conservation and greenway projects.
