Friends of Glen Providence Park group seeks to protect park
A new group of Media Borough residents has formed an interest group to protect Glen Providence Park and affect the outcome of the 3rd Street Dam construction.
They have set up a FaceBook page for Friends of Glen Providence Park:
We are a group of citizens around Media, PA who want to preserve and enhance the natural resource of Glen Providence Park.A portion of this park is now under threat from the planned repair of the 3rd Street bridge/dam. The current design would fill in over 100 feet of the park where there is currently a waterfall, pool, wetlands and mature trees, replacing them with a grassy slope.
We would like there to be public input in the design for the bridge/dam repair.
The history of the 3rd Street Bridge repair is addressed in several posts at http://mediapanews.com/tag/3rd-street-dam/
Upper Providence for Open Space has been wonderfully supportive and posted our information on their website: http://www.upperprovidenceforopenspace.memberlodge.org/
You can find a trail map here: http://www.co.delaware.pa.us/depts/glenprov.html
She encourages “anyone who loves the park”, who cares about the bridge design, or who wants to be involved going forward to join the group Friends of Glen Providence Park on FaceBook.
The group has had one official meeting on July 14th, but plans to meet regularly during the design process.
