Marshalls Falls Park Update

An endeavor that started in 2013, we have reached a groundbreaking at Marshalls Falls! To establish a parking lot and loop path to overlook the falls, the township has removed three buildings from the 17-acre property.

This is the first step of the ongoing development at Marshalls Falls. This phase is funded by a grant provided by the Demolition Fund administered by The Redevelopment Authority of the County of Monroe. This program funds the demolition of blighted property within the county.

Removing these buildings will make room for the much-needed parking lot, including necessary access to and from the falls that will be ADA compliant.

Waterfront Wellness Park Developments

If you have had the pleasure of stopping by our new playground at Waterfront Park in the last few months, you have most likely seen construction at the gazebo. Since the installation of the new playground, changes continue as we complete the transition to the new Waterfront Wellness Park.

In addition to updating the gazebo location, this phase includes work near the waterfront. To stabilize the stream bank, a riparian buffer is now in place. This native vegetation will root and prevent future erosion. Along with removing dead trees for safety and replacing them with saplings, this introduction of vegetation will create a new, native garden! Furthermore, visitors can now enjoy a garden loop trail.

This development has been funded by the township’s application to grants provided by Pennsylvania’s Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
