Oakbourne Park in Westtown Township has received a $1.5 million grant to support its ongoing development, according to a staff report from the Daily Local News.

The grant was awarded through the Community Conservation Partnerships Grant Program. It is being administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

“This big investment will ensure that Oakbourne Park continues to serve our community and families for generations to come,” said State Rep. Dianne Herrin.

The grant will be used to finance the construction of basketball and pickleball courts, as well as a plaza, pavilion, and comfort station. The project also includes the installation of pedestrian walkways, a parking area, and playground equipment. The existing ADA access, interpretive signage, fencing, and utilities will also be improved with the help of the grant.

“Ensuring our community parks continue to be well maintained and accessible to everyone will always remain a high priority,” said Herrin. “Investments like this expand our collective mission of ensuring our community continues to be a wonderful place to work, live, and raise a family.”
