As Saint Anthony’s in the Park begins phase one of its redevelopment project, there is also a rebranding effort underway. The park, which will re-emerge as New Garden Hills, will get new signage and renamed roads, writes Richard Gaw for the Chester County Press.
The developers plan to incorporate existing design into the new construction. For safety purposes, many of the roads will be named or re-named. A monument will sit at the entrance of Limestone Road. In addition, many hazardous structures such as the caretaker home and other buildings will be demolished.
A 1.5 mile trail will be open to the public this upcoming fall. There will also be a picnic and playground area completed in 2024.
“Beginning in June of this year, we began to take a hard look at what we wanted to do with our vision of Saint Anthony’s, and we knew that it would never be the township’s intention to just slap on a new coat of paint and put up a sign that said, ‘Under New Management,’” said Mike Buck, the township’s Parks & Open Space superintendent.
