$290,000 Carnegie Park improvement plan to add new facilities and beautification

The Borough of Carnegie has been working toward a huge improvement project for the 34-acre Carnegie Park since 2007. Thanks to a $145,000 grant from Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, the Borough has voted in favor of the plan and hopes to begin the first phase of construction by next fall.

"The improvements will include a park community message board, a fenced off-leash dog area including amenities, renovation to the existing stone shelter, an ADA accessible playground, roadway modification, and a beautification of the park entrance," says Steve Beuter, project assistant for Carnegie Borough.

Since voting to go ahead with the project in February, the Borough has been working with Gateway Engineers on initial design plans and the project is scheduled to go up for bid sometime in the spring. The total project cost is $290,000, and the Borough agreed to match the state grant.

"One major opportunity that the Borough has created with the park rehabilitation is that it will allow Carnegie to create a safe and enjoyable environment for residents and non-residents alike to utilize for recreational purposes," says Beuter. The second phase of the park, which is still being conceptualized, will likely entail significant lighting enhancement, field maintenance, and new parking areas.
